Chris,
I have the Centerforce 13lb flywheel and love it. I am running a Centerforce II with the lwt flywheel. It revs right up like a race car. It is a noticable difference over a stock flywheel. As far as driveablility, I have no problem, as does my sister who occasionally drives it. There is a differece in acceleration, and since we are both running the 3.1, I don't see launching as a problem, so much as traction is a problem. And HKS no longer makes the 10lb flywheels, If you order from Motorsport Auto, they will give you the 13lb Centerforce Flywheel. If you are dead set on a 10 lb flywheel, order it from Arizona Z, the price is about the same. Those are really your only two sources for the lightweight flywheels.
And with regards to the Centerforce II and drivablility, no probs whatsoever. Just make sure you break it in like you would any clutch that you would want to last a long time. If you run it 100% right away, any clutch will go bad. You need 500+ miles of normal driving before you go hog out on it. This helps bed it in and match the friction surfaces to the flywheel/pressure plate. If you want a really hard launch, consider the dual friction. It doesnn't have the takeup like a stock clutch, but it grabs. I would stick with the Centerforce II. Something you might consider, is to order a turbo flywheel and get the clutch for it. You will then have a higher pressure clutch,(I am talking about the lwt flywheel and centerforce cluthes). But the centerforce 13lb flywheel is not made for the larger turbo clutch. Arizona Z has the larger flywheels.
