Unless your car is a purpose built drag racing car i don't see much benefit from it. Stick with a normal brake set up

They'll work good on the street...

As long as you only plan to drive a quarter of a mile at a time!

There are a lot of ways to cut weight up front, they may not be totally worth it if it is a daily driver. Stuff like AC delete, convert to manual steering. Also relocate the battery to the trunk. The car itself is already fairly balanced cut weight through the entire car.

Yeah I'm wanting to do overall weight reductions eventually. I was planning on the lighter battery but in the same locations. K member, tubular bumper support, radiator support and a few other odds and ends like the drive shaft and the ram 9.5 billet steel flywheel and clutch setup.

Rear seat delete, lightweight race seats also. Remove all the sound deadening from the car.

I don't know about your car, but with my 01 there is supposedly 50 pounds of sound deadening in the car, and then change out the power seats to light race seats thats about another 50.

You can get the car under 3,000 pounds fairly easily. It all depends on how far you are willing to go.

I'd be willing to be right at 3000. I'm not wanting to go cutting things off but I'd like a good fat trimming for sure

It'll be hard to hit 3000 in your car without removing a good amount of your luxuries, it'll also take trimming since stock you are at around 3450, and you don't have the luxury of swapping from an iron block to an aluminum block like my car would, that's 80 pounds right off the bat.

Tubular K member and A arms are good for 60-80 maybe more depending on which brand. Smaller battery is around 10ish. Sound deadening and race seats I would just estimate to be 100 total.

So you are at around -200, at this point you are done with the easy stuff. Now it's time to decide how much more luxury you want to sacrifice for weight reduction.

Easily done...remove parts, one part at a time. Start the engine; if it runs, remove the next part. Repeat this process until the engine will not start; put the last part you removed back on.

Weight reduction complete.
