fidanza flywheel = lose low end torque?
I ordered my fidanza flywheel and act clutch.
A friend told I will lose low end torque.

However reading some it depends on the weight of the flywheel. If it's too light you lose the momentum stored in the flywheel. But if the weight is right you actually gain some torque.

Those of you with the fidanza flywheel -> How's the low end torque?

you cant lose any power from a flywheel...

the flywheel will let you regain some of the torque you lost from the old one.

That's what I thought, BUT I read articles saying that if the flywheel is spinning it will make it easier to move the car thus more torque.

I figure, if it's easier to make more revs you gain torque.

I'd love to read some experiences from people that have it on their celica

The flywheel will make your revs rise/fall faster. On a GTS this can be both a good and bad thing.

If you ask me, the factory clutch has more than enough holding power considering that the Celica doesn't put down that much torque.

Basically all a lightweight flywheel does is free up horsepower and torque. Since it weighs less it takes less horsepower to turn it. hence you gain horses that where already there. And trust like I said before probably one of the best and cheapest mods available for the Celica. thumbsup
