Will 440rwhp, 4.30s, & 5500+rpm launches balance the cons of an Aluminum flywheel?
Ok, it is time for a new clutch. My car has the following:
4.30 geared 9"
315 MT DRs
440rwhp and 410rwtq
I have had the car for almost 3 years and have not been to the track. I intend to take it a couple times a year from now on. It will not see a lot of track time, but when I go, I want a good number. I street race from time to time. Mostly, I just drive the car (I like to drive "aggressively" though).
I have an opportunity to buy a brand-new McLeod Street Twin with an aluminum flywheel for a good deal, but have heard some bad stuff about the aluminum. It offers great acceleration, response, and more hp, but the launches suck.
I have spent the last hour going through the archives and have not really come up with a final answer.
Would my gearing and 5500+rpm launches make up for it? Or should I get a new steel flywheel? Which one?
