In my book, any time you can cut weight out of a rotating assembly, it's a good thing.

Will you notice the difference of a full spool? Doubtful. But do this sort of thing 10 times, and it'll make a difference.

If your building a 9" from scratch, take a look at the lightened ring gear too. I think Speedway carries them.

Well, I've run a lightened steel spool since the beginning of the year, with no problems in a 3000 lbs racecar. I was told to stay away from the "ultra" light spools, as they were more suited for a Modified.
