This is our first attempt at flywheel, any recommendations?

What are you trying to launch?

Turning Point balls 3 inch (diameter)

Note: I have never built a flywheel.
Many teams in turning point used a 600 5:1 ratio for 3000 rpm. I assume that this is for a single flywheel?

That should be good enough assuming you aren’t using a small flywheel or trying to launch the balls very far.
