Gotta revive the thread a bit

Full gutted, lots of metal cut out internally when the cage went in. Super light seats, CF roof panel, hood, drive shaft.

Scale read 2,860 with me in it with a couple items. We weighed 147 so the car is currently at 2,713 with a nearly full tank, full cage, and six speed/r180.

Future goals are 2,500, then pushing to the low 2,300 range. CF front doors and hatch, lexan, gutting hatch, drag brakes, and lightweight suspension components will hopefully get me there.

So, 90 pages. 2229 posts. And yíall just stopped? No posts in almost 8 months? Surely itís past time for the usual ďJust take a dump before you hit the track lol!Ē trolling?? {yes; I called you Shirley. Youíre freakin trolls. I should care? }

But, seriously, itís fun to see how ocd some people got chasing fractions of an ounce-AND the creative work-arounds other people came up with. And, kudos to those willing to post failed experiments: thatís how we learn.

Now I really want to go delete my front bumper-beam. And those brackets, and, and, and.....

Most of the people who really tried to drop weight have done so and posted about it. Then most of the people simply duplicating old strategies tend to not post something showing they "did it too". I get pm'd about this thread more than it gets posted in sense the last time I posted something in here.

Update: My car is still light. lol.

Here is one I haven't seen and TBH it is a little ridiculous if i have to say so myself. haha

found my stash of aluminum bolts that Mark from Mooresport gave me many moons ago lol, so I put them where ever there was a low stress area.

Any idea what the savings was from that? I've got my EJ20G on the stand with a Dremel in one hand and wondering how much dead weight I can carve off this thing, but shorter/lighter bolts would help toward that goal as well.

I have no idea, I would need a small scale to figure it out. But if you are cutting bolts and shave weight that's pretty extreme for the time vs rewards IMO. Even this, if I wasn't given these I would not have bought them.

Meh, its aluminum, easy to drill out if that happens, and there isnt a need to remove these bolts that often.

It's more of the thermal expansion properties as well of the 2 metals. And being a TT car, you know you will see higher temps.

holding down a wiring harness, plastic sensor and an inspection plate, not worried about it. If something fails I will be sure to come back and show the wrongs. But I don't think this will be a problem, they are all in low stress area's.

Aluminum bolts?

I know the A/C weighs alot but i want to keep it. So what can i take out that is not needed to reach my 200 pound goal?

By now in Ohio your car would of had 40% weight reduction with all the salt we get. The midwest rust diet.

lol I was given them, and these are reusable and look much nicer than zip ties all over the motor.

Donít know what I posted here last, but I got my coupe down to 2580 recently. Last thing I did was chop up the rear bumper beam and remove the bars under the rear seats, since I have no rear seats.

Still a lot more I can do, just involves more work and/or money. I think I can get it down to low 2500ís or even high 2400ís without much problem.

I have a set that are gutted on my spare shell, but I like my "full interior" as is so had no plans to do that to the DD.

Did you want weights on the gutted doors?
