To my knowledge, a lightened flywheel would not affect the rotational speed, just how fast it gets there. Pretty much what is does is make it rev up faster because there is less weight for it to move. It's like how long it would take you to get a bike rolling (by pushing) versus a car in neutral. You can't push the bike any faster than the car but you'll get it to the top speed a lot faster. Okay, this may sound like totally giberish, I was just in the comp lab for the past 12 hours for a project.
