Ways to drop weight from auto 2013 GT Premium.

Also, the ways would have to be w/o voiding warranty. Otherwise I'd get a 1-piece driveshaft.

Why? We all know you aren't racing you vehicle at a track.

But if you want to...

Take spare tire/jack out of trunk.

But this can work against traction/launches since there is less weight over the rear tires at launch.

Only fill the tank up 1/2 every time.

Cardio

Veggies

Fiber.

Why do you post thread questions that are painfully obvious and common sense should provide an answer?

If you aren't going to give a decent answer, then don't comment. I'll rephrase the question, does anyone know some lighter bolt on parts, such as wheels, hoods, etc. I know about Rear seat deletes, Jack and spare removal, and 1/2 a tank, I've heard those things before, as well as a driveshaft, which I won't be getting for a while.

A rear-seat removal kit wouldn't void anything I wouldn't think. But then you're driving a two-seater. I mean, if you aren't taking it to the track there's really no need and in everyday DD situations you won't notice weight reduction items like never topping off the tank or removing the spare (a bad idea in general unless you're racing).

Yeah, I wouldn't be removing the rear seats, I need those. Sometimes I do drive with people in the back. I'd only take out the spare at a track.
