Thank for the compliment!
You bet. While this doesn't apply to you since you were developing this for the DCT, people with MTs will replace their flywheels with heavier, Dual Mass Flywheels (DMFs). This is done to improve the shift behavior to achieve smoother shifts. So, this is a case where lighter is not always better.
