Where else can weight be saved.

Post by ajrfulton » 22/08/19 0:19

I am trying to trim another 20kg out of this car.

What weight is in the dashboard?

What weight is in replacing the windows with polycarbonate/lexar?

Is there any other ways that weight can be lost without being silly.

Car is at 935kg just now and is a 2zz, 6 speed competition only. I would love to get this down to 915kg.

Not sure how much you have taken out already or how far you want to go but you can probably save a fair bit by removing the HVAC, loop the lines at the engine and remove all pipework, blower, ducting ect, if it has AC remove the condensor, compressor and pipework.
Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust,
If you don't take it out and use it it's going to RUST!!
