Get a segmented FW from Cale if it's available, keeps things flatter longer.

www.advancedclutches.com will build just about anything, including reduced diameters, light-weight or heavy-weight for your application.
There’s also McLeod & Ram.
He builds them there in his shop.

All of Advanced Clutches products are SFI certified as he is SFI certified. I’ve talked to him about this idea...his flywheels don’t “blow up” at a specific RPM. I think that’s the idea about a “segmented” flywheel?

The segmented fly wheel is showing that it is staying/keeping things flatter longer.

Not about "heat dissipation" and ridding yourself of excess weight

The only thing segmented on these flywheels is the heat shield, they are bolted on instead of riveted, and not designed to "blow up" at a specific RPM. I doubt you will ever hear any flywheel maker claim his flywheel will do that. I've had one in my car for five seasons and it is still as flat as it was when it was new.

Actually it was a post by Cale Aronson on the old UMTR site. He was discussing how he was spinning his flywheels (for SFI?) and it took x amount of time and x amount of RPM to fracture. It was a selling point on his segmented flywheel. Iím sure Iím going to get shit on for saying that but thatís what the post was all about.

I don't believe Cale has ever made and sold flywheels, Ram makes segmented wheels and that's what I have.

I believe Cale makes them for his own setups; I talked to him last winter about a clutch for a Pontiac and asked if I could send my flywheel in to use and he said he can get the dimensions for about any engine.
