Remember that lower mass means less inertia. So you can spin the flywheel more quickly, but it will also slow down more quickly when you remove throttle and carry less energy when you go uphill. This won't matter on your track/weekend car, but bear this in mind if it's your daily driver.

I have a Fidanza 8lb and loved it when I was n/a. I wonder if eventually I should upgrade but I think it's ok for now.
