type s and r are the same.

stock is around 10 lbs for R

I doubt another lb is really gonna make any diff at all.

The lighter the fly wheel the faster you will fall out of VTEC. You should only switch to a lighter fly wheel when you are going FI to help spool up your boost.

I also "heard" that its a good idea for something like autox.

If your gonna just do autox then yes it probably would be a good idea since your gonna stay in 2nd most of the time. Youll be able to "hold" a gear better. But if you move into road racing or drag racing then you run into the prob of falling out of VTEC too fast when you upshift.

My mom told me that running a lighter flywheel can make you impotent. And I know for sure that it will make your face "freeze like that" it happened to my friend :)

I think both of you are full of it, i know that your rpms drop faster but that is when your are decelerating. But when you are on full throttle and power sifting i dont think there is any downfalls.

It just requires more precise heel toe shifting, all that stuff about "falling" out of vtec is pointless since once the clutch is released, the rpms would be back up in the beloved "vtec". Another thing, if your motor is tuned properly, it wont matter if your in vtec or not since your torque curve should be nice and smooth. A light flywheel will make for much faster shifts than the average joe (that honda must keep in mind to stay in buisness) can handle.
