If your going to be dragging the car, I'd say go ahead.... but if your going to auto-x the car.......... well, that's a different story.

once you take a whole bunch of weight out of the back of the car...(say... 200lbs.), you start to make the car front-heavy, which in my experience, ruins the cars handling.

Of course, The car in question was my old focus, which I stripped for racing right before I wrecked it. I ended up putting sand bags in the spare tire compartment to even out the weight.

TRUST ME! KEEP IT THE WAY IT IS!!!!!!!!
