Most say you'll have to slip the clutch a little more than with steel when starting from a dead stop. Others say they hardly notice a difference. I'm sure it differs from car to car (different wieght vehicle, gearing, cam, etc.).

The Fidanza (sp?) aluminum flywheel has a replaceable friction surface. I would assume the durability would not be an issue

I plan on buying one through Brian at AD Performance. Best price I've seen.

As long as you have a street oriented clutch disc you won't really see a difference other than it will be a bit more finicky about lugging at low rpm(might buck a bit) but that would depend on the cam as well(if it has any low rpm manners to begin with).
