Steel for Drag racing type use with sticky tires. Aluminum for street or road course type use with treaded tires and few drag race style starts.

My Firebird is primarily my weekend driver. Periodically I take it to the drag strip.

OK, I just read this post

and I think I'll send the aluminum flywheel back to summit and order the billet steel for $150 less.
