Quicker response for rev. matching, a little touchier for engagement from the reduced momentum.

Maybe not depending on use, not as good for DD stop & go or consistent launches.

Performance parts all have their purposes, match them with your objectives.

NASCAR or more extreme Formula 1 are examples of high performance clutch/light flywheel - at that extreme starting from a stop means dropping the clutch & spinning the tires. Stall it out if you don't.

Right combination to handle the engine power and be tractable for your purpose is best.

This^^^^^^^^ For a dd, I wouldn't use it. It does have a awesome feel to it, but not for a dder in traffic. I'd use the oem luk & go w/ poly dsm/psm if you want to add more response.

You wont know its in there , I have driven hundreds with the Alum flywheels and never any issues at all , If you go the Clutch Masters clutches there easier to use the clutch and you wont hardly know you changed it

my experience was as Tom described it.

I've had no driveability issues with an aluminum flywheel and Clutchmaster stage III clutch. The pedal action is maybe a tiny bit heavier, but that is about it.
