i figure i've dropped somewhere around 150 lbs or so off my car by switching my hood and trunk to cf and also changing my bumper beams to the jdm lightweight beams. you can see pics at http://homepage.mac.com/kstiggger/PhotoAlbum37.html and other links up top.

Only things I remove when I go to the track are the spare, jack, and tools. I figure thats good for about 30-40 pounds. I gutted my last car(2000 Si), and now I'd rather run knowing that I have my full interior intact. Oh and drain your washer fluid bottle. That should save you some weight

And don't forget to take a leak before you hit the track. That'll save some weight too.

I plan on removing the tar under the carpet when time alows, which I hear is good for roughly 20lbs.

also rememebr to take a fat dump before you go on track, fast the whole day before, drive nude, no shoes or socks, carbon fiber helmet, take off the front hood, the doors, and the dash...
oh, and the shift boot too lol.

i think elisnic (sp??) has posted about this a few times, he gutted his car to the max iirc

Default I wouldn't

take the 1/4 tank advice. I'd worry about fuel deprivation under extreme acceleration. I've replaced the stock headers (iron), removed various weights inside the cabin (safety stuff), replaced the stock seats (serious boat anchors), replaced wheels/tires (only 2 to 3 pounds a corner saved here, stock wheels/tires are light), removed the u-brace and replaced it with the Cusco Ver ii lower arm brace, no spare, no jack, no floor mats, aftermarket shocks, exhaust, downpipe, uppipe, removed TMIC and all hardware, removed gbods, removed foglights, lighter flywheel. I've added some weight with braces, harness bar, harnesses, FMIC, BBKs, etc, but still am well under 3000 lbs. I'll be losing some weight with a titanium catback, lighter battery, aftermarket steering wheel, etc. I won't touch my audio, air conditioning, or gut my interior.

cool deal san, I plan on gutting, but fabricating somethings to go back in place of removed plastic, not totally redoing my interior, but, like I said in another post somewhere, I'll be going for the lotus elise concept, good looking but skimpy.

the weight embedded in it, the glovebox doesn't "way" much.

With a Borla header, GP Moto downpipe, and GP Moto titanium catback (only works with GP moto downpipe), I took ~43 pounds off the car, +/- a pound or so. Although I think I forgot to weigh the exhaust hangers, which could weigh a couple pounds. About half of that weight was from the header and downpipe.
