No one can really provide these numbers, unless someone takes apart the pulleys and measures the two weights. Then you have to create a model that the inside pulley is rotated by the center hub and the outside pulley is rotated by the inside pulley. With such model you would find that the rotation inertia is MUCH BIGGER and it not only relevant to the weight difference. As said before it is a complex problem and there are unkonwns in the equation (i.e. the weights of the OEM pulleys). It is much easier to make some measurements and see how the car behaves with standard tools like the virtual dyno app.
Are you trying to imply that the inside and outside parts of the crank pulley rotate at different rates? The angular velocity and acceleration of all three pieces (inside metal, outside metal, and rubber gasket) are the same. They can be treated as a single item for this purpose.

I'll tell you what, I'll even pretend the pulleys are thin-walled cylinders of the outside diameter to give you the maximum possible inertia improvement. I still feel modelling the pulleys as solid disks is the best approximation for a comparison, seeing as aftermarket can't actually change much about the inside hub or outside surface without compromising function, but whatever.

Tcoat: blashpemy. Flat Earth IS fundamental science. You are old man that hangs on to old misconceptions opposing modern creationist scientist findings! There are brave heroes on youtube, that build rockets to prove the flat earth truth that reptiloids tried to hide from humans. Luckily there is hope for humanity. Once creationism will be taught in US schools, there will be more and more people enlightened with divine truth!
Now .. do you want to talk about God? I have some bibles to sell ..

A heavier vehicle takes more energy to accelerate to a given speed as a lighter vehicle. If that acceleration is over the same period of time, the heavier vehicle will have had greater power applied. Virtual dyno probably starts with the acceleration numbers and back calculates the amount of energy that must have been put into the vehicle using the kinetic energy model. If your mass is off, your power output calculations are off.

Plus it assumes a 100% perfectly flat road with no wind. To rule out slope or wind you'd have to do pulls in both directions and average out the graphs.

"fantasy" can contribute much to these numbers on your car
lol, now 198whp, every week something more

It is well known that higher gears will give more hp on the wheels even on a stock car, but as usual you like to make personal attacks.

I dunno, man. I smell what must be either troll, or the crazy.

I don't get this then. Assuming there are MARGINAL gains at best, it would still be unwise to install a pulley kit because the drawbacks still far outweigh the benefits.

It honestly sounds like you're trying to justify out your ass your purchasing of the pulley kit.

I checked for elevation differences with a gps device. Your comment to make pulls in both directions doesn't make much sense. You cannot make the test at the same time and if there is wind, then it might not be steady. It can change direction or intensity. The best option is to avoid windy days.

it is not a personal attack since i do not offend or literally attack you in any way
it s just that you say your car makes 198whp together with other things that have no sense, i say it s impossible and since it s an open forum I answer when i want. Report my replies to a mod/admin if you thing you should do it, i guess they will decise wheter I m attacking you or no?
Virtual dyno is not a proof, proove what you say with a dyno and everybody will stop debating with you, you can trust this
open a crowfunding if you don t have money to take a measured real world dyno, I could even contribute to it : )

The best option is put the car on a dyno, do multiple runs and then compare results.

Hahaha ... are you serious? No one will stop debating. At least not the known ones over here. They'll start questioning about the accuracy of the dyno, the number of the pulls, the way the car was strapped down, the weather or temperature conditions and whatever else you can imagine. It has been done numerous times and not only about pulleys.

I remember similar debates when the same people were questioning about different air intake systems. They were insisting that there were zero gains even after real dyno evidence. Of course, no one from these people would accept the more obvious thing that a different air intake could provide REAL gains just because it was manipulating the MAF readings and you could have a leaner AFR. It is what it is with stubborn people. They'll never change ...
