On high end bicycles Ti frames, components and fasteners are very common. There the weight difference can really affect the overall picture but even so on flat courses without repeated constant accelerations like in criteriums or in certain time trial events the weight impact on performance is really minimal. Makes me think that the impact to a 2500lb vehicle would be more psychological than anything else.....
