    How would a poor idle be related to a well balanced engine?

    It's not.

    I just said that to see what it was like to be wrench for a moment.

    I was horribly disappointed.



    (Actually, my point was that balancing your engine doesn't mean much if you don't get everything else in line)

    I do attribute my ability to idle, as low as 700, with an aluminum flywheel, to having a really well-balanced crank.
