Rear seat delete is a good start. Aluminum racing buckets would shave quite a few pounds too. Relocating the battery to the trunk will help redistribute weight.
I'd stay away from the front sway bar delete unless you only drive in a straight line
You're kidding, right???:hihi:
The rear seats weigh a whole 1 pound...lol TONS of guys have the BMR radiator support with swaybar delete on daily drivers and they aren't crashing. Unless you're on a road course, the delete won't effect you much at all.
Okay, here is the way to shave...
First and foremost remove any stuff inthe car you don't need - spare tires, tools, etc, etc.
Lighter rims and stay away from the BIG brake kits. If you have the cash, get the Bogart Welded RT's. The 1-piece DS is a must, rotational mass weight reduction is by far the biggest bang for the buck but don't be fooled by how much lighter aluminum is over steel - it is a myth. I have a steel 1-piece DS now that weighs a whole 4 lbs more than my Powerhouse Aluminum DS did and was almost half the price.
The driver seat weighs almost 90 lbs and the passenger is almost 75 lbs. Some decent race seats cut a lot weight there. The BMR radiator support with sway bar delete is another great place to shave about 45 lbs plus will help you get that launch you're looking for on skinnies if you use them. Tubular K-member is the next spot on the shopping cart and then it's time to start looking at some QA1 drag springs and struts to help in the launch department as well.
The battery relocation really doesn't give you much. You don't relocate your batterry for weight, you relocate it to fit in an ice box if you have a s/c. Keep away from the big body kits and remember to buy lightweight aftermarket engine goodies if you choose to upgrade your radiator, etc.
Best weight shaving mod is the driver..lol If you're fat, go on diet...
stlwagon - just messing with ya. I didn't know about the rear seats until I actually took them out and realized hey weigh nothing...lol
