aftermarket flywheel.. what you think?

Alright.. some new aftermarket performance part out now.. its ACT ProLite forged flywheel..

http://www.atmotorsports.com/product...roducts_id=284

one of the key phrase -

Quote:
Lightweight flywheels keep less inertia in storage but the lighter rotating mass provides significantly improved engine response and acceleration characteristics
so what does this mean.. in normal way of speaking!?

Anything that is rotating within the powertrain is potentially power sucking. A lightened flywheel has a similar effect on power as pulleys, lighter and easier to spin. However, a lighter flywheel also makes it harder to drive the car and easier to bog.

That being said, I believe only manual cars have flywheels, so only they can use this mod.

I think automatics do have one.

Doesn't the torque converter bolt to the flywheel on autos? And doesn't the starter gear engage the teeth on the perimeter of the flywheel to turn the engine over when starting?

yes they do. it's thin and light, no need for improvement.

No, they don't. They bolt to a flexplate when using an automatic, flywheel for manuals. The two do not interchange, and are built much differently.

You don't want this light weight flywheel. Not until your motor is a high rpm, high HP motor that isen't going to be used for light driving

Exactly, you wont need one of these until you most likely turbo/ supercharge it and or add a better throttle body.

It's bogus anyway. Tracey pulled it after he found out his distributer was giving him incorrect info.
