Default lightweight flywheel=smoother shifting?

i was just wondering if a lightweight flywheel makes it easier/smoother to shift? I'm still one of those newbs that sucks at the 1-2 shift, expecially if I'm trying to do it with some decent acceleration

Thanks!

Nope, just takes practice. If anything a lighter flywheel will make it harder because it can allow the engine to rev up or down faster.

this is true, since ive installed my lw flywheel i have had to be more conscious about shifting. I can no longer lazy shift! the revs drop too fast... but then again I dont have to shift as fast as I can every single time either! The car is also slightly more jerky if i am not as smooth with throttle inputs. (i also have lw underdriven pulleys)

its nothing that you wouldnt get used to after the first day of driving though. I barely notice it anymore. But when other people drive my car they stall it every time starting from a stop!!

Yep, a lighter FW would be worse for shifting smoothly.
