There is some very uninformed opinion in that debate!
I have a Fidanza alloy flywheel on my Elan and it works very well with the standard Elan clutch and 1720cc.
When I raced a 26R it had a lightened cast iron flywheel and I used to worry about it since I was using 8000rpm in every gear-the only thing that happened though was that the ring gear would get thrown off occasionally, which was very inconvenient!
I have never seen a documented case of a modern aluminum flywheel failing-has anyone?
