also if its too light its very prone to breaking. After seeing pictures of what happens when lightened flywheels go wrong im not so keen myself.

In which case If I recall the conversation I had with Ian Birch correctly when I was building my 6a 16v donkies years ago he recomended that you shouldn't go less than 11 (kilo's/lbs) which seems reasonable to me.

I have seen the mess fractured flywheels make when they explode and they eat everything in their path, legs included !!

look it up on you tube im sure there's some impressive footage there.
