Miscellaneous Ramblings: I would think the rotating mass of the drive pulley would have been included in the calculation of the appropriate-sized flywheel ... of course you can also get lightened flywheels, at least for your manual gearbox folks.
In yet another reference to the good ol' days, for very short runs you simply removed the fan/generator belt on your Volkswagen Beetle ... the rich boys had lightened flywheels and lightened drive pulleys, along with adding a few revs at tickover.
Or you could go all-electric like the Prius, and just momentarily turn-off the alternator and water pump ... the fan and power steering are already electric. Think water injection or nitrous oxide on your Spitfire (Rolls Royce Supermarine, not Triumph :--)
When WILL we get a turbo 2.5 litre MazdaSpeed CX-3 ... with Recaro seats?
