more than just power mods, suspension helps put down the power to the ground.

Maybe I should just get some new wheels too. guess I'll have to start watering the money tree some more...

i saw a post "what does it take to run 12's" under unread posts since last visit. So i clicked on it. And i didn't know in order to modify my car i had to know how much it weighs. I've spent over a year in a technical school for automotive, and another 6 months learning nothing but Mercedes-Benz. Not to mention growing up building cars... so i'm pretty sure i can find my way around my car just fine... but thanks for making an ass out of yourself.

damn good 60's. Slicks sure make a world of difference.

how much do one of those foci weigh, anyways??? Those times are awesome for the power... im guessing they're pretty light. 2600lbs?
[/quote]
stock they range from : 2,750 to 2,593

judging by the pix they must be at 2400

how can you tell that from the picture? haha. they both ran full interior.
[/quote]

light weight wheels
baquet seats
cf hood

but there is all that extra weight under the hood.

in the video i saw that he had full interior, thats why i didnt go lower than 2400

not to nitpick but

1. their stock wheels are 15" so those drag wheels aren't too much lighter
2. the black one has stock rsx seats so not much difference in weight. the green one has stock seats
3. the black one doesn't have a cf hood. that's the reflection of a cloud.
[/quote]
some dude i know back home, got a zx3 those weight 2593.

we went and weight every parts we took off and installed.
seats/wheels/steering wheel/hood/rear bumper and rear seats off and stayed off
replaced by
recaro seats/rotas/momo steering wheels/cf hood/

the total weight he took of was only like 240 pounds (not too good with those).
then if u add a turbo kit , it is more weight, so i dont think that car is a lot lighter than stock.

i was just guess from what i know.

you took off 240 pounds, but how much did you put back on? there is no way he lost 240 pounds in swapping seats, hood, steering wheel, and bumper. Probably about 80 at best.
[/quote]

i can not tell u how much it weights it iwas 2 years ago.

the rear bumper was about 9kg and that stayed off.

just looks at sky's 3

he seats weights 23 pounds while our stockers are 45 pounds or some, that is already 40ish pounds already

take all the junk in the rear an other 15kg

rear seats close to 10kg too.

hood, that was a huge difference, a very well vented CF hood, there i can not tell u the weight, but i could pick it and raise it high with just one arm.

so minus the passenger seat, spare, rear seats, etc, you could probably get it down to 2,950. Run on ~1/4 tank, with some 16's and drag radial and low to mid 13's should be easy stock i would imagine. I guess i'll just have to wait until it's in my driveway to find out.
[/quote] make sure u watch out for ur engine mount.

Has anyone tracked their car with the stock mounts? I'm going Thursday, and I'm somewhat concerned about 'em (they will be replaced ASAP, though, and I don't think I'm going to do that many runs)
