Loaded weight actually helps top speed in many cases
Thank you Sir... and I weigh ~200lbs.. maybe 220 now that it is winter...

Personaly, not to be rude, But I have to laugh at these people that go WAY overboard with weight reduction, like the guy that built up my car, he was going for a road racer, understood, he didn't hardly drive the car.

For someone like me that is going to be driving this, not quite daily, but driving it somewhat normaly(did I mention my 90mi a day comute to work)... WHAT'S THE POINT? I can only "legaly" do 70 on the hwy... so WHY in gods name would I want a car that is so freakin loud?? Why would I concern myself with what it weighs as long as it's still fast (which it WILL be) It's plenty fast enough to get me locked up... why would I need more? It's already a cop maginet, so, while i'm doing the speed limit and I have some asshat in a stripped car flying past me... Fine... I'll turn up whatever sweet sounds i've got playing, and cruse...
