That's a very interesting idea. If I understand right, you could keep the motor spinning at it's optimal rpm, and use it to keep the flywheel spinning, and when you need acceleration, take the energy stored in the flywheel. This sounds very intriguing! I hope you try it! Make sure you document your process and results! That's very original. I like that idea.
