3580 without me in it. Did you go the manual top route yet? that'll save ya a few lbs but not much....Have you gone through most of the car from a lightening stand point?

Is this a track only car? One thing you can do that is old school is take a 1/2 hole saw and go all through the sheet metal and.... Well you got the idea, lol...

Hahahaha well I'm about to break the plasama cutter out and go to work.....found a lot of useless shit that's going. I'm wanting to set a realistic goal of 3300lbs....if it goes lower great, if not oohhh well....I will keep yall updated. Car will hopefully run 9.5's with a 6-speed on 1 stage and hopefully 9.3's on both......

Nice ride! How long have you had it? Did you by chance purchase it in Waterloo, IL... near St. Louis, MO?

An old racer once told me that to take 100lbs out of a car, look for 100 places you can take out a pound. If you look really close there are a lot of places to pare some weight.
