A six puck clutch won't help at all, plus it's like an on/off switch so you won't be able to modulate the clutch easily at say... a stop light.

i heard the spring 6pucks are pretty easy to get use to. So what about the flywheel?

you should rev quicker but have less momentum hence going up hils or anything else with a significant load will lose speed more quickly unless yo are moving at a pretty good rate.

faster 0-60 requires either more traction (if your not getting any) or more power, or taking it to the rev limiter.

Faster 0-60 time can be achieved with weight reduction. Lighter wheels, striped interior, carbon fiber this and that and a light weight flywheel. That's why you don't see race cars sporting 22" spinners and such. Reduction of rotating mass (wheels and flywheel) can be significant.

Think about it this way. 8lb flywheel is about a 10lb reduction for what about $300-350? Price out a set of lightweight wheels that will reduce the weight by 2.5lbs each (think below 10lbs per corner). Flywheel seems cheap in comparison.

For a search on m.net for posts by Loren about his messurements before and after an aluminium flywheel.

I've got one, if I had to do it again I wouldn't have bothered. The small gain I got is dwarfed by what I gained with the turbo.

I clutch that locks up quicker will make a quicker 0-60. The quicker it locks up, the quicker the power is being transferred to the driving wheels. Of course that might mean less than a tenth quicker.

i guess i am looking at it too simply. but if your clutch is crap yea a new one will obviously help you get the power down faster instead of spinning your clutch. but if its not you tend to get a faster harder bite and usually helps you cherp the tires a little. the lighter fly will help the revs change faster accelerating and decelerating. so theyll drop faster when you left off the gas to shift, meaning you can get it into gear faster. short throws are a perfect compliment to a light fly because of this. yea you should be able to drop your 0-60's i was able to change my 0-60's by 1-2 10ths depending on how fast i shift. with a light fly and short throw and learn to use it you can sound like you have a sequential
