Just a suggestion. You might need those in the future.

If the air bags were 15 pounds each then I would take them out but 10 pounds each no deal.

Theres no noticable road noise without the deadening. The floor just feels harder. Kind of like if you put a carpet matt on a hard floor without the layers under it.

Back Seats Ill probably take out once I actually start going to the track.

I dont wanna take out my interior or anything. Ill keep my CD player. I wont add 100 pounds of stereo equipment like Honda boys who spend $800 on a Carbon fiber hood to save 10 pounds but add all kinds of other weight.

I wont crash. I have a buddha necklace just like Rambo and he took out vietnam all byhimself.

I dont drive like this kid.

Even the best drivers gets in accident, even bad ones. If you use that car on the road, you're putting yourself at a huge risk. Go out and buy a junker to use as your street vehicle. If you are really into the weight saving idea, make that car a track car, nothing else. The bumper isn't put on a vehicle just to add weight, it'* to protect you and your passengers. Think about the other people that ride in the car with you.....


And just to add to the mix, it'* illegal!

dont take this personally, but thats the stupidest thing ive ever seen in my life, okay, im gunna be honest with you here, what the hell are you thinking? If u ever get in an accident, you will regret it, I promise you that, insurance may not cover something like that because the original safety equipmen has been alterd and removed.
