Diet question?

I am looking into ordering my cage material this week or next and I am trying to decided between 1 1/2" .090 wall and 1 1/2" .120 wall. I want to have the car be SCCA compliant and the cut off point between the 2 would be a curb weight of 2500 lbs.

I am gutting the complete car, no AC, minimal heat, Recaro SRD seats in front, no sunroof, but full weld in cage.

I was thinking I would be able to come in under the 2500lb limit with ease.

Anyone see a problem with this?

Thanks

Brendon

Send pelican DUK a PM or email.

He works for a NASCAR race team but also builds/sells PCA/SCCA cages for 911s.

He can speak to your cage weight question.

Thanks, I am going to fab my own cage. I worked 7 years in NASCAR (BGNN) and 2 years in IMSA and one in SCCA if you count Skip Barber as SCCA . My question was more on the weight of a stripped 930 than a roll cage question

But I will shoot him a PM.

Thanks again for the input, this forum is full of great people!

Send him a PM, he has a 930 with a stripped interior but steel panels.

Lost my photos of his car to a hard drive failure otherwise I'd post some.

He thinks it should be around 2550. Check the page in this link:

What dose your 930 weigh?

My 930 is stripped (no more protective coating) but still steel flares. FG bumpers, everything removed that's not needed. Aluminium cage, Recaros, etc..

Weight is now about 1040kg with full tank (can't tell exactly now, because a lot of changes since last weighting).

There is nothing to stripping these things. Take out what you don't think you will need and keep what you think you will. For instance, I need my bumbers because I never trust the people who parallel park in front or behind me. Heater I took out but put back once I moved to a place with sick highway speeds and more rain. But a much simpler heater. No controls on dashboard, just hoses from the floor area direct to the defrost funnels at the top. Power windows, mirrors, and stuff have to go. I don't use door panels either. Don't need them and not having them makes it a joke to fix door dings. Most of the stripping work is getting the interior nice enough for painting. Not just scraping but it could also mean straightening the floor some. As I've said before, I never cared much about weight reduction. I just really like no luxury inside a 911 or Jeep. Drill a couple of holes on the floor and clean the interior with a hose.

That's a great shot of your car in front of die alte Hütte in Gmund.
