going back 2 single sp. worth it? & lighter flywheel?

Anyone reckon a lighter flywheel on an engine with .56hp with an rpm up to 29,000 (thunder tiger) would make a noticable difference?

Thinking of trying a lighter flywheel, and putting back in the single speed for my next local meet...note that the straight wouldn't be longer than about 12-15 metres.

Do you guys think that by allowing the single speed and engine slow down together, as opposed to the 2speed where the engine just idles after letting go of the throttle, will give better handling round corners and more stable during turns etc?

Your car idles when your clutch shoes come back to the closed position. So its the same with a one speed or two speed. A two speed gives you better low end do to its lower first gearing compared to a one speed gearing. I would leave the 2 speed in.
