do you really race your car enough to do that......I wouldnt do it unless I only drove the car on the track
Tbone said:The best thing about the RL imho is that you don't need to strip it down for it to perform. It's a real, usable car that is more than fast enough to have fun with at the track without doing a thing to it or ripping anything out. For its size it isn't an especially heavy car either.
Street weights for other "sport" compactshaunter said:yes it is
2800 lbs is very heavy for a 'compact' fwd car
I don't really think all the pulling of factory parts is going to benifit you a whole lot. Especially at the performance level our cars are at. 100 pounds is worth aproximately a tenth in the quarter. Not a whole lot of gain for the added discomfort IMHO.palahniuk said:This summer I will pull the air conditioner out, go with a set of lighter rims, remove the spoiler, get rid of the stock exhaust/muffler and air box, rip out the factory stereo/amp/speakers in favor of something much smaller but with all of that I'm probably looking at only saving 50-60 lbs or so. At this point I am not even thinking about gutting the trunk or removing the back seat, I think the wife would definitley have me committed for that one.
There is also the option of a carbon fiber hood, trunk, and body kit but I don't think that's in my price range at this time, and again, the wife thing .
