viney266 It depends , if we are talking about a race car, Yes, weight matters. However, to make your street ride nasty and uncomfortable, it isn't worth going to extremes...but weight loss never hurts..and the carbon looks good , too

Deadzx5 Ive run a few beater cars that I was just screwing around with in the past and gutted them. Now when I say gutted, i mean gutted. Just bare metal, also the engine had about 80 pounds taken off.

There was about half a second diffrence between the before and after, this is in an old half destroyed fox body.

Not big enough of a diffrence to have the horriblely noisy ride. (a rock hitting the underside on the freeway sounds like you hit a mack truck.)

Honestly, the only time weight makes a big diffrence is when you get to the thosands of pounds.

popecruz Major weigh reduction isn't worth it in my opinion. Gutting the whole car to stay in the 15's seems pointless to me. Just my opinion.
