This is the lightest, raciest option. You get the weight off the rear, too. If you track your car, it is easy to replace when they get sand-blasted at speed around the track or get damaged while you push your way to the front.

I like GT Racing fiberglass. I just left the fasteners unpainted on mine. I can post a photo if you want.

You can get special resin/fiberglass ratios for "race" that are lighter because they squeeze out excess resin.
Can you post photo?
