Ed...
I think Will has the right set up using an Aluminum Flywheel and Clutch in his BB.

His comment about "the hit" and too violent of a hit is the clue.
With some of the new converters that have a hard STR rate I see the same TOO MUCH HIT. Especially on some lighter cars.

The nice thing on our Plus Sized Cars is that we have real 4-link suspension.
The weakness are the attach points on the Frame.

For some reason when properly stripped they can get fairly light even with BB.

Will what was the lightest weight you got your car?
