Default Questions for all you Zenoah Guru's.

Ok here it goes...I am building a 260 pum and was wondering the best crank I should go with. I was told by a knowledgeable person that a full circle crank may be better as it will displace case volume causing a mixture speed up effect. Actually you see people trying to use the shim's to decrease crank case volume and increasing power significantly. I was also wondering, wouldn't that also increase rotating mass, thus also decreasing power output? I also see people trying to lighten pistons, rods and cranks but why not eliminate the huge heavy magnet embedded within our flywheels and put the engine on a CDI diet? I noticed that MSD had a nice unit that runs on a r/c car battery. I think someone should come out with a harmonic balancer that would take the place of the flywheel. Imagine how fast our engines would reach speed without those heavy things...
