The 2D feels smoother but can be more aggressive depending on set up on tension,fly weights
2D less weight, less spring tension smoother shift faster spooling

No. You'll have to buy the lightweight flywheel separately.

Yes, but it depends on the variables. Such as: traction level, track size, track layout and driving style. The lighter the rotating mass (your drivetrain), the faster the car can accelerate out of corners and in a straight line.

having lighter drivetrain is definitely an advantage, but too light will result to less top speed..i suggest u spec it according to the track requirements..

I think every little bit helps. My car has titanium top screws, but I still use steel in the bottom.

Thanks! I have ordered both.
I'm using a stock Sirio STI and now I got a 353 murnan. I'm getting another clutch so I don't keep changing the clutch between the engines and to have a spare clutch too.

If you have multiple engines, having extra clutch setups can make life quite a bit easier.

Are you guys having any luck with titanium screws? I couldnt get them to stop stripping, IMO, I think tonys screws are much better.

They will strip a little bit easier than steel, but I have stripped plenty of tonys screws as well. When you buy titanium screws, have extras.
