100lbs is easy.. 300lbs should be your goalThis s just my first step. I'm going to get rid of the spare wheel, put racing seats, take out the subwoofer, and possibly remove the rear wiper. all in all, I'm hoping to get somewhere close to 100 pounds off by the end.
There's the old AAA membership / cost axiom for reducing weight.I'm always afraid to remove the spare tire. I guess all that stuff in the 'trunk' could account for 40 lbs easy.
I think the subwoofer is just over a pound. The rear wiper assembly is about 2-3 lbs, including the counter weight in the hatch. I suppose one could always remove the windshield wiper reservoir/fluid for a few more pounds.
I disconnected my AC on my 300ZX when I had it. Always thought about removing the whole AC system. But that is hardcore.Emptying the fluid could probably save you some decent weight, I don't imagine the resevoir itself weighing much of anything though.
If you're really hardcore you could probably remove the air conditioning assembly :biggrin: I know a few people that did that back when I owned my previous car.
Already accomplished! :thumbsup:The stock cats weight around 50lbs combined. Put in test pipes for 200$ and you will get power and save 40lbs.
Well.....the stock cats including the bracket that holds them together might weigh about 30 lbs or more.Q: Are the stock cats really 50lbs together? :doh:
Full-Titanium exhaust (shave about 40lbs)
Test pipes (shave another 20-30lbs)
Lightweight battery (shave 20-30lbs)
Racing seats (20-40lbs)
Lightweight clutch/flywheel (20-40 lbs, rotational mass too)
160-220 lbs right there. Thats before CF hood, rear wiper, and removing sound deading material which could net you maybe another 20-30 lbs total. After that, you can get real crazy with CF hatch and lexan windows and such, but thats up to you. At that point, you have to worry about safety as a daily driver.
Did you get titanium test pipes?Well.....the stock cats including the bracket that holds them together might weigh about 30 lbs or more.
The other stuff might help. Test pipes vary, but I feel like I got the lightest ones out there. I'd like to get a dry cell battery, too.
:doh: You got me there....See my thread here
The stock cats are 23lbs EACH.
Did you get titanium test pipes?
Rear wiper and counterweight MIGHT shave off a couple of pounds. I took it off because it was a PITA to wash the rear hatch.^Good thread. Seems to me stuff like speakers and rear wiper stuff is a waste, but there is some good stuff in there I didn't know about.
