    I wondered if the claims made in this advert are true. Can having a lighter flywheel do all this . If so , at my current Mpg it wont take long to pay for itself Yeh! , no .
    I know the old skool boys used to use lightened and balanced flywheels in the old fords but never understood the whole concept.
    Feel free to enlighten me.

    Lightweight flywheels are rotational mass, so just like getting lightweight wheels, it will make your car accelerate faster.

    UUC has a good tech article

    But I would avoid their flywheels haha.

    Get something from AP or Rogue Engineering.
