Just another thought......

I realise that you guys who have lightened flywheels woudl knwo best, and not trying to be too controversial with this one, but if the flywheel is lightened, wouldn't this create less engine resistance when using engine braking?

ie, you would need more engine revs to create the same level of engine resistance, as the engine turns over more easily with a lightnened flywheel?

Therefore engine braking at the same given revs would be less?

Wouldn't it?

I know that Dibble will be along shortly with his flux capacitor theory - so c'mon Dibbs, lets have it!!!
