best bet on getting lov 0-60 times, is to reduce weight. As I said in an earlyer post, don't bother whit the flywheel, the few lbs you loos won't make a diference, but the loos of torque might.
just get as light as posible rims, and tyers. and remove the interior if you must, kizza sels fiberglas bootlids, and other fiberglass parts to reduce weight.

Remove as much weight from your car a possible for free, remove torque limiter in 1st gear, get some track oriented tyres, then get the flywheel lightened. All of which will improve 0 to 60 acceleration times.

A lightweight flywheel will help to noticeably reduce rotational mass of the engine especially in lower gears - however you will loose out on driveability eg when pulling away at low rpm with lots of passengers.

yes your arches are worse than mine but I think yours must be a stonking drive matey - i think your going to need those metal patch panels from Germany (???) or 206 front wings cut in to sort that properly - usually filler and rust remedies just means the rot comes back at a point - there was a sticky on here for the patch panels somewhere.

As iv cut all the rust and sealed the seam and hammerrited was just going to leave it as racing puma rear quarters are going to cover it plus abit more space for the wheels as they stick out abit .
