In regards to all the bashing I'm receiving, please get off your high horses and remember I am speaking in a general sense and all I did was reference reports I have seen over the years. Just trying to offer another perspective because sometimes it seems around here that people believe that lower weight is the be-all and end-all, when sometimes that isn't necessarily the case.
But you aren't speaking in a general sense. In fact, you even stated yourself that you were not speaking in a general sense at all!
Here, let's quote you:
Very basic physics will also tell you that a rotating part which is 'too light' will also be unable to maintain a rotation for as long under certain operational conditions.
So that's not very general now is it?
So, again, Alex H, what are these "certain operational conditions" ? And again, Alex H, we've asked you to cite the specific references you are pointing at, but you have failed to bring them to the discussion.
This isn't so much bashing, this is actually what happens at WW as opposed to other forums. We actually think about things. We do the math. We want references. We seek actual proof, not just 'tales from the internet'.
We're still waiting.
In the meantime, you have clearly not done the math.
And again, Alex... you added "+ performance" to someone else's quote about safety/reliability and then claim that someone has agreed with you? Are you kidding? Or are you George W. Bush?
But that's the point from the beginning: we want to know, Alex, where you are claiming performance will be lost in grip
? Even I stated from the very beginning about the necessity for proper engineering (which is that safety factor in regards to weight). I also specifically replied to you general statement about "performance" but, even back then, asked for cited references on your claims about "loss of grip." Which, again, we're still waiting for.
So, again Alex (and really, it's getting tiresome of you taking the ownership of the name Alex here... it's getting a bit offensive to the other Alex's here) - what are these references that specifically point to the loss of "grip" ??
Christ, my point exactly, and the exact reason for this topic. Glad we got there eventually.
We didn't get there eventually. You
added your point onto someone else's statement that does not agree with you and then claimed the argument was finished? That's ridiculous.
