I've done it right off of I-75 and G.L.C. for you MI guys. Just a State cop runnin it - he kinda laughed and said alright. What is the worst they are going to do? Say NO!?!? Give it a try!

ComfyCar you trimmed 25 lbs. . . . . You can lose more then that!

windshield washer fluid: 9+ lbs.
antifreeze in the coolant overflow: 5-8 lbs. (depending how much you take out)
misc. engine brackets: 4-5 lbs.
A/C compressor (if not working): 15 lbs.
lighter battery: 30+ lbs. (depending on what battery you have now and the LW one)
jack stand: 5-10 lbs.(car didn't come with one?)
spare tire: 30 lbs.
compressor: 5 lbs.
emissions (EGR/EVAP): 5 lbs.
strut bar: 4 lbs.
hood liner/seal: 3 lbs.

TOTAL: 100-150+ lbs.

That is just to name a few there are many others.

I didnt take out much

I dont plan on doing too much more

I am getting the dyna bat battery which is 30 pounds lighter,

Im going to remove the door panels and see whats in there

I figure in the end Ill probably take out 60 pounds or so. If I take out the spare and jack then I'll be pretty close too 100 and thats supposedly enough reduction to knock off a free .1

Theres not much of anything you can remove from inside the doors unless you want to move the crash bars which makes you about as safe as a go-cart if a car hits you from the side.
You could take off your stock wing for a few #* and be a bubble butt at the track.

Yep right on the .1 for a 100 lbs. Where that weight is will also play a huge factor making it possible for even bigger gains.

meaning...you want to take stuff out of the back of the car if possible. The farther back the better.
