Default Light flywheel.

I understand the concept of a lightened flywheel, BUT ive heard not to use them, because the weight of the heavier stock flywheel keeps your rpms up when you shift gears? what are the pros and cons on a lightened flywheel?

Pros - quicker revving; more fun
Cons - the slower you shift, the faster RPM's drop; can be a pain to drive in stop-n-go traffic

If you get a flywheel go with the act streetlite. It is a great flywheel and more durable then the prolite. I have one with my exedy stage 1 and it is a perfect match, and to answer your question, yes they are worth it in the long run...

you will rev faster therefore you will drop rev faster at the track with a good shift setup I personally believe the flywheel to be a most beneficial upgrade on the street this may be different depends on your driving style so typically alot of ppl will hit the middle and get a 10-11 pound instead so some performance but still plenty of driveability. Basically opinions vary for street driven applications so all in all if you dont mind a driveability issue to deal with then go for it I plan to but Im not going lighter than 9.9lbs

I have the streetlite... It's great and definitely revs fast and made a difference compared to stock... the car is still totally daily driveable...

Then again I went from a stock B7 to my built turbo motor which lifts the front wheels from a roll in 2nd and 3rd despite having a quaife... mwahahaha
