Haha. I've lost a good bit of weight myself I'm curious if it has helped my times. I fit better in the car at least. Another thing would be your fuel level. Full tank would provide more traction. And almost empty would be a lot less wieght. Could play with that.

I knocked off .2 tenths in 1000 foot when I took out around 180 pounds out. I also started to pull wheelies. It helps Alot!

I always heard the old timers say, 10# lost equals 1hp gained.

Yeah it defiantly helps out! power to weight ratio has a big role in racing. Especially weight reduction on the front end of the car.
