i have type s with greddy turbo kit and just wondering what kind of fly wheel and clutch i should get. any suggestions?
could you explain this a little more to my newbie ass =)p220 said:you're able to stay in the power band longer between shifts with the fly.
Nope!! I think you are confused. How can less inertia help rpm's stay higher? Quite the opposite. Once a heavy flywheel is in motion, it doesn't like to stop. With a lighter flywheel you can get rpms faster, but you actually loose rpm faster as well. Think of the flywheel as a battery, of sorts. The lighter it is, the more power available now... less available in storage (in the form of ineria). It helps with acceleration in first and second, but is more tempermental to stalling or wheelspin and you will get less hit when you shift to the next gear. A lighter flywheel will also help to decelerate the enginewhen coming into a corner, for instance.p220 said:your rpm's stay higher longer.
Assuming you have a great clutch (ACT comes to mind for some reason) if you rev up your engine to 8000 rpm and drop the clutch in 3rd gear, with a heavy flywheel it may burn the tires for 50 ft before lugging the engine down. With a light flywheel, it may stall the engine at 5 ft.p220 said:thanks for explaining that, i retract that last statement. i always assumed my rpm's stayed higher longer since the flywheel install. can u explain "less hit"?
