Hi BroMikey, you are right, this generator must be a magnets modified one. I made a similar set up with a normal generator and Lenz-cogging destroys it soon. No jokes with Mr.Lenz-cogging, trucks use it as brake.

So basically there are two tipes of flywheel generators:
1-Unmodified generators with unbalanced flywheel to break the Lenz-cogging.
2-Modified generators with little Lenz-cogging and a balanced flywheel acting mainly as an energy storage.
