    I'm sure if it's too light it'd becomes harder to drive it economically right? which is great for track days and such. but when travelling on motorways it might build up revs quicker but it'll also slow down alot quicker too so engine braking comes into play slowing you down quicker.

    I was considering this, those who have fitted lightened flywheels what did they drive like afterwards? would you recommend?

    its not bad on fuel mate, its easy to stall if your not paying to much attention to it, but the organic helix clutch has its part to play on that one. Revs don't drop off that quickly in comparision to a standard fly, imo.

    When i had my corsa Z18XE i dropped in a nova GSi flywheel in, and it was rev happy, fly up the revs and came down just as normal tbh.

    Ive not fitted a lightened fly to my Z20LET, but the one im building will have one in, but whole bottom end will be balanced too.
