Doesn't sound like you've actually owned one. There's a huge difference in acceleration between the typical 30 - 40 lb Toyota flywheel and an 11 - 15 lb flywheel. I definitely wouldn't call it a track only mod, it was one of the best mods I did to my Supra.Originally posted by doock87@Mar 20 2005, 05:32 PM
the flywheel is a large gear connected to the crank of your engine. it's where the tranny meets the engine with either a clutch or torque converter, depending on your tranny. a lighter flywheel means less rotational mass on your crank allowing you to rev faster and drop rev's quicker, letting you shift faster. however, if you get a flywheel that is too light, it can be a pain to drive the car, as it will drop rev's fast as soon as you lay off the gas. unless you're looking to make the tc a track car, stick with the stock flywheel, it's good enough for most spirited driving applications.
