What are your plans with the car? A flywheels obviously alters the driveability of a given vehicle, and aside from that different weights make certain things easier the achieve in different racing scenarios.

Super light - Great for drag racing, highway pulls (stupid), etc...

Stock and close to stock - Great for roadracing, modification dependent. This is because the flywheel is not only a suface for the clutch to act upon, but is also storage for engine momentum to keep revs form falling quickly between acceleration and engine braking.

So really it all depends on what you want to do with the car...

Well i want it to be good for DD, are you saying a super light flywheel will be a pain to drive with? Also i dont plan on doing to much more to the car. Another question will the weight of the flywheel play a factor in how much longer the clutch will last?
