Dag Nabit! I forgot about brakes, that means I need to phase it into one of the phases. Wont I lose some weight there too with some Carbon Ceramics.
I also need to check the tire weights as well as that may save me a few lbs. I may be able to get this thing under 3k lbs.


Dont worry Jenk it will take me a while to get down to 3000 lbs but phase II starts real soon as I have Turbo Twists in the mail, GT3 seats soon to be in the mail, gonna have neil remove the front bumper support and follow Als instructions on how to remove the rear seats. I imagine phase III wont start until late this year for next year. You better get your driving skills on. We got corvettes and vipers to crush. I feel better with my car having 250 less lbs to stop in the corners, my brakes will thank me. Plus from what Neil keeps telling me there will be a couple of 700 hp turbos at the track this year too, I HATE LOSING!



EDIT: Added the brembo's to the weight loss column.

DMK & HeavyChevy: Have either of you done the bumper support removal on your cars yet? Love to see a DIY for exactly which parts are being removed.

I really like the weight loss achieved by removing the bumper supports...but I'm very hesitant to remove them. Without them, one relatively slow speed rear hit could mean; "bye, bye" engine.

Yeah I agree, I'll have to find another way to lose that 20 lbs, I'll do the fron though.
