I don't give a snot about racing...

and I just pulled prolly 80-100lbs of roll cage out of the car to be able to MOVE... The rear hoop must have weighed 40-60lbs..

I can garenteeee the car will still be faster than most.... 6.0L GTO wasn't a problem comming home, now, it would just be a slight problem..

Loaded weight actually helps top speed in many cases

You making a competition sound car or are you just a true audiophile? That sure looked like a lot of work with the sound deadening. Nice work there.

Well, if I could EVER make it out to Cali, I "might" have.... but the likelyness of that is rather slim right now...

It'd be nice to see your car in the 12's though.... even if you CAN'T do more than 70 on the Hwy.. lol

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...

I'm not sure man... I've been doing this stuff for a long time, I'm not sure if i'll compete or not... It's mainly all for me... I got a smokin deal on all of my sound deadening products, so much so, it has allowed me to go WAY overboard from my origional plan... Sometimes it pays to be really active on the forums and make consise decisions and observations during your installs.. Much depends on WHO is reading your posts to..

I've gotten very lucky in the past few months, I am thankfull every day that I get to do this and that I have my people here and on other forums to help me along, i'm not selfish in the slightest when it comes to listening to peoples opinions and ideas on any of my ventures... In fact I encourage it, to the fullest extent..

Like, soon it will be time to place my amp somewhere (a RF Power 1000 5ch) So I will be needing ideas shortly... And you will see a post asking for ideas... I assure you.. lol

Cheers..

I've run out of SS Damplifier Pro... Hopefully more is in the works here real soon... moving on to making up my RCAs now and possibly running power wire and all...

So far the count is:
64sq/ft of Cascade Vmax
~60sq/ft of RAAMat BXT
80sq/ft of Second Skin Damplifier Pro

Just a lil update..

I'm a lurker on the audio section of Nasioc but man... you have done what I have always dreamed of doing. This is amazing, I would never do it on my STI since I work so hard to knock weight off, but on my DD I'm definitely going to try and do something like this. I'm always scared I'm going to f-it up but with all your pictures and everyone else's explanations, I think I'll be set. Just have to wait until I get out of debt. Can't wait to hear how it sounds

Thank you Sir, and glad that I/We could help... And like I said in the beginning, I'm going WAY overboard, some well placed deadening (search for STi sound deadening for more details) can do wonders..

Oh, and a NEW update, more SS Damplifier Pro is going in the mail... I've basically received a forum sponsorship from Second Skin products, I've been given the "go ahead" to mention that now... It's is not a "full" sponsorship as I cannot meet all of the requirements for a "full" sponsorship, but, it's been discussed and considered a "mini-sponsorship" or a "forum" sponsorship...

I feel truely blessed..

This makes me laugh.

I don't see any sound dampening being installed in my car, so how can you be doing it for the rest of us?

Your car is an inspiration to those who may want to replicate what you've done, and you've provided excellent pictures for them to learn from.

I'm doing it for the rest of you, cause I love the world... just, not most of the people in it...

and you have no idea how many times I get flack for ADDING weight to my Subie, when 90% of the people are trying to remove it...

My car is fast enough, the speed limit is 70mph... the car could double that, I could go to jail... yadda yadda yadda...
