Thinking of turning my FD into more of a racecar

I have a touring edition FD that i am going to build up even more and im toying with making it track style car. The more weight i can strip the faster the car will go. I will cruise with the car way more than track events(drag or road race). Im just thinking if i want to strip the plastics, sound system, ect. If anyone has suggestions or pictures of their race ready FD post them up. I know the more stuff I strip off the louder the cockpit will be, but I dont really care about noise when cruising. Im just wanna go fast!

I wouldn't strip all the plastics out if you were going to drive it on the streets a lot.

Personally, i took out everything in the hatch; bose system, carpets, and plastic back there, and the divider behind the rear bins.
