Re: Swift vs. Samurai Flywheels
Looks like you had it balanced too , or at least I hope you did . There is a relationship between rotational weight and power . Yes, the engine will spool up faster and also decellerate faster for compression braking . However, there is one drawback . You will lose a bit of "gained torque" . This is the ability of the engine not to be knocked off it's rpm by a load . There will be a noticable difference when engaging the clutch or when you come to a hill or gust of wind . For the application you are building it should work out real well . Just hammer it down , sidestep that clutch , and yer off to the races . BTW, what did they charge you for that cut job ?
