- Plastic front and rear bumpers
- FRP front hood, plastic rear hood, Lexan quarter and rear windows
- Stripped interior, RS carpet kit, RS door panels, no console, 2 Sparco EVO seats and harnesses tied to a 55lbs roll bar
- Front trunk empty (not even a horn)
- Smugglers box with light weight battery
- No AC parts or lines anywhere
- Schnell headers w/out heat
- Rotary muffler - aka Zork
- Lightweight Mini Started (saves 8lbs)

I'm calling it 2500lbs with 1/2 tank.

March 07 corner balance was 2533lbs with 2/3 tank and my 35lbs B&B single in dual out muffler.
Have you had problems with ride quality? My car is currently as stiff as I want it, in fact I am thinking about backing off to a 22mm front torsion bar.

Does your car get bouncy as you take off more and more weight? I am at the borderline now where I don't want to go further with my Bilstein sport shocks.

What torsion bars and shocks are you running?
