imagine how much faster his lude can be without the extra weight of the baby and seat!!!4bidden said:well tonight we had a local prelude meet (too good to come huh altered4? ) and one guy had a silver 4gen with a jdm h22 sprayin a 75 shot of zex. he also has a clutchmasters flywheel, im pretty sure they are 8lbs. running all motor, not sprayin, it knocked 4/10ths off his 1/4 mile time. and this wasnt some ricer or anything, he was a father that even had a baby with him, lol. so obviously the drag racing theory is false.
my favorite thing of the whole night is when the guy im talkin about raced another white 4gen from a light and was sprayin with his little baby in the car in a carseat right beside him...cracked me up that he would do that with his kid straped in a carseat....lol....probably not too safe but was definately a good laugh. i'll have to post up some pics from our meet, actually had a good turnout. about 12 ludes i think showed up on short notice.
nearly all folks with lightened flywheels also have performance clutches. that is probably why that guy's setup is so much less driveable than yours...wutangben said:I have a friend who's friend has driven a 4th gen with a lightened flywheel, and whenever he drives my car he tells me how much better and easier my car drives than his friends. he's repeatedly told me over and over not to get a lightened flywheel because it ruins the driveability of the car. now i respect this guys opinion (he's an alfa romeo buff, has had 4, has 2 now, bout to by another) but i guess i couldnt make an opinon/decision until i drive with one.
i would like to hear what others say about this, because i've been wondering what other peeps think.
ABSOLUTELY none, don't believe anything anybody else says, you only notice a gross increase in power and nothing is sacrificed. I have the 8lb CM Aluminum one.lickmylude said:Everyone always talks about the good things about aftermarket flywheels but nobody says if it makes the car harder to drive in traffic or whatever. Can someone please tell me their experiance? Thanks.
stock is around 22lbs like mike said. if you're looking for a flywheel around that weight check out the JUN lightweight flywheel. it is 11.24lbs for the h22. the ultra lightweight JUN weighs 10.24lbselement h22 said:what is the stock flywheel weight??? cause i was lookin for around a 12 lb, (not too light, but not too heavy) is that really close to the stock weight? later!
so this means it'll only be worse for a automatic right?mike_sho said:The lighter the flywheel , the more you need to rev it to get the same weight moving. It makes your engine rev and and deaccelerate faster.....thus making stop and go driving or launches harder.
You also get weight savings , but its really not meant for street driving and you will wear your clutch more because you will be revving and slipping more to get going.
you act like 3/10sec isnt much? that's quite a bit for an all-motor car.H23ludedude said:i have a 8lb Fidanza flywheel and ACT clutch and the only gain i noticed was 3 tenths in the quarter mile. The driveability is the nearly the same and all these "myths" are not true in my case. I would recommend it to anyone, the whole 50% weight difference isnt true from my personal experience. I would recommend the
8 lb Fidanza fly to everyone.
Yeah you should know..... Have you tried different weight flywheels. Im probably the only one here whos had 2 different flywheels on two different cars....it effects driveability.H23ludedude said:i have a 8lb Fidanza flywheel and ACT clutch and the only gain i noticed was 3 tenths in the quarter mile.
