You might investigate the weight differences between the aluminum layshaft and the spring steel one and then run which ever is lighter. You're talking about rotating mass, and lighter rotating mass will allow the car to spool up quicker.

they have 2 lay shafts that will work a soild aluminum and a solid aluminum pro ...the pro is a little bit lighter, hollowed in some spots.

I was thinking of going to get a set of 1.77 pulleys but i dont feel like getting the new layshaft also. And i run fine with 2.125 pulleys.

How much are those 1.77 pulleys anways? 40-50?

I think my LHS has 'em for about $34, IIRC. Add the cost of the layshaft to it, though and it gets a bit more expensive.

I bought my Evo 2 Freedom of Choice from a friend who gave me the low tario pulleys and layshaft in the deal, so... And, my FK came with them so I've never had to really buy them out of my own pocket.

If there's a FK in your future, just hold off on buying the pulleys until you get it.

Hey dude, it's a TOY. Get the car you think is coolest and I think you will be happy. I'm sure unless you are at the top 1% of drivers, the car is not holding you back. For me, that's why I just picked the most popular car with the most support from my local shops.

Truthfully, nobody here knows what car is best for you.

The same question comes up with people who like to race real motorcycles and real cars. What we usually say is :

"If you really have to ask, it's not going to matter"

Peace
Donovan
