Aluminum>steelI was told ,aluminum for road racing ,,steel for drag racing..I could be wrong..
this is what im told also, but i think i will run a aluminum f/w because i do mostly driving the car, not so much drag racing. but havent decided yet. maybe use the cash for more hp gains instead.I was told ,aluminum for road racing ,,steel for drag racing..I could be wrong..
That's what i was thinking...i heard steel for daily driving and drag racing but my car don't have much of a curve on the dyno so fidanza al fw (flywheel)with the steel inserts is what i'm thinkingI have a Fidanza Aluminium Flywheel and it was by far worth the money the car is much more responsive. Acceleration is so much faster and it revs down in under like 5secs insted of the 5 mins with the steel one.
That's what I was told as well, that it's not good for drag racing because it drops your rpm quicker...Aluminum>steel
The only reason I can think of that you would have been told steel for drag racing is because in between shifts your rpms will fall a little faster with the aluminum because there is less intertia keeping it rotating when you're off the gas. IMO the rpm loss with the aluminum isn't enough to cancel out the HP gain you will see. Plus, if you're power shifting you never let off the gas anyways, in which case the aluminum is far better.
