I am very pleased with the results!

That is a great thing considering before , my car weighed 3600lbs with me in it! I removed 226lbs of weight !:D

Thank's guy's. They also setup the suspension on the car also and the
anti-squat. I am not sure what all that means, but he said my % of antisquat is very good!

Wow, 3375 w/ you, an iron block, twins and I'm guessing all the safety stuff to run 9s? Nutty, any pics of the engine bay or interior?

Crap, now you are 40lbs lighter than I am (I weigh 235 though), I may have to step mine up a little :)

Its not hard to get one of these that light without making it look like a gutted race car. Mine still has power steering/brakes, stock hood, 25.5 cage, fire system, air shifter, all the interior panels, stock hood, 95% of the stock wiring and I have never cut a metal bracket off the body. He also has a glide thats 50lbs lghter then a TH400 so his weight isnt that out of line.

Almost all the safety stuff! The shop hasn't had time to convert my 6 point to a 10 point yet, so that will add a little weight!
I was very surprised though to say the least! All my panels are factory as well as the hood. I still have the stock brakes front and rear, and all the interior pieces are in place. I removed all the seat's and added 1 kirkey race seat. Everything behind the dash is gone and all the wiring is gone, except for what is needed to run the headlights ,blinkers and power windows.
I also have a manual brake master cylinder.All tubular suspension as well.
If I was to put Bogarts on the car and drag racing brakes and a pin on hood, I could get the car down to 3300lbs with me in it,I would think.

Good diets guys. Can't quiet convince myself to delete the amenities as of yet. When i do it though, I plan to go full tilt (k-members, brakes, manual rack, !hvac, lightweight carpet, kirkey seats, maybe even a glass-tek hood).

Holy shit I need to put my car on a diet! It is 3570 without me, just about 3800 with me. I took out the AC, ABS, Rear Seats, Traction Control, and Cruise. Added 9", 6 pt. bar.. Still have stock K Member and A arms and bumper supports. I guess those need to be gone soon!!

My stripper weighed 3300 with 1/4 tank with full interior, spare tire, AC, PS, etc. Had the EGR and AIR out and the front bumper bar removed. PS is now gone so it should be a couple lbs. into the 3200's.

Mine is a stipper, but since I am slow I don't need a bar and I still have stock brakes w/ ABS (not for long), stock K-member and A-arms, Door Bars, stock hood (modified to be pin-on), I haven't cut out any un-used brackets yet, and don't forget it's an LT1 so the motor weighs more then an alum LS1, and it weighed in at 2985 with me in it (200#) this weekend. But, since I blew out my stock front brakes this weekend I should be lighter after I get a new setup under there I am hoping for < 2900# RW for my next race...

I meant stripper as in the zero option cars, with manual windows/locks, no traction control/rear defrost/foglights, etc., my car's mostly factory still, but 2985 with you in it is impressive!

Yeah I realized that, after re-reading it but I was up early this morning and only half read it...

Yeah my car is pretty light, but the weight will start being added to it soon enough, by next year I will have a cage, more safety stuff, and a 9", but then again I'll have more power then too...
