Let me (us) know how the new flywheel works out.  I am thinking about one
for my driver/project car.  Dad says they will help in acceleration.  I am
looking for all the "bolt on" parts that will help in this field...without
lowering the dependability factor.  I wanna keep it a "driver".

Thanks in advance & good luck!!!
