thank you.... i was leaning toward aluminum.....another question, will the Aluminum create as much boost for my launch as a steel wheel would, i know that the aluminum is much lighter as far as rotating weight is concerned and you need to launch at higher RPM for this reason....

I do not know if the weight of the flywheel will play a huge part in building up boost against a 2-step for launching. I'd guess if it did you could compensate things via some timing changes when on the 2 step.

then Aluminum it is....i think im gonna get that QuarterMasters 8.5" cluthc and flywheel setup, along with their bell housing....the clutch and flywheel are only supposed to weigh 20lbs apposed to stocks 54lbs....pretty cool in my book...

my drivetrain will consist of......Tremec Proshifted TKO, QuarterMasters steel scattershield bellhousing, QuarterMasters 8.5" racing clutch and billet aluminum flywheel, FRPP Aluminum driveshaft, hardened U Joints, Pro5.0 shifter, line lock, Moser 31spline axles, powertrax differential....i hope my turbo set up doesnt break anything....

Quatermaster = the Shiznit

very good stuff and they really reduce the MOI (which is what matters, not really the weight) on their clutch/flywheels..
