WEIGHT

Postby loftladderman » Wed Jul 07, 2004 6:08 am

Does anyone have any idea what weight a Roadster (Turbo) would weigh if ALL the unnecesary bits were tossed out ?
A carbon fibre seat fitted for the driver only.
What weight saving would there be ?
Seats / Hood / Frame / radio / AC / Power Steering / everything that would NOT be required if the car was to be "tracked" only ?

Hey Mac the best weight saving would be a fat free diet for a month you might save a few stone!!!! Ha Ha Ha
It worked for me.

Paul, I always said the heaviest thing in the cars is ME :oops:
At 16 stone its quite a bulk !
BUT...for me to lose 4 stone of spare fat I would have to:
Chop of my head (Then not see where I was going).
Chop of a leg (Then have to choose whether to keep the right one to accelerate and brake using the slush box MX)
I could remove BOTH legs of course, but then I would just be a "low down BUM" :lol:
