Re: balance shaft delete

My balance shaft is completely locked up. I had some crankshaft issues and when my mechanic took a look at it he noticed the 2nd belt (inside the enclosure) was completely shredded. My mechanic (who doesn't know honda) said all he could do was remove the gear so that the belt would continue to work for the rest of everything down there (or tear apart the whole engine to fix it and charge me 1.5 body parts).

But I can definitely tell it has no balance. It's not that big of a deal just yet because I only notice it once every 100 times I let off the clutch in 1st gear the car shakes real bad. It freaks me out when I'm not prepared for it and I scared that one day I'm going to be racing it and the crankshaft will crack.

Is that a possibility? Is it worth getting it fixed? This is my daily driver but I do plan on doing a few bolt-ons for fun. I realize the answer will not be cut and dry but any input on this would be great.

BTW I don't notice any extra vibration @ idle but then again the balance may have been off since I bought the car.

Thanks in advance.
