Flywheels -- Light vs. Heavy

Light flywheels are a great modification for most street or track cars. The reduction in rotating mass has a noticeable impact on acceleration in lower gears and certainly makes the car feel more responsive to throttle inputs. On the other hand, it's not a good modification for drag racers or those who live in extremely hilly locations. Here, a heavier (stock) rotating mass helps keep the car from bogging on launches.
