Weight Reduction????

Im going to be doing some weight reduction on my car. I was just wondering what else I could do. I know about the plastics and all. I'm going to be changing my seats. Which would be the lightest seats I could get that are still comfortable to sit in?

Almost any racing seat will be very light. One problem is you get ONE seating position, better make it count! No recline for those long drives and very little padding. As for reclining stock type seats they all weigh about the same if they don't have power options all over them. SCCA IT rules used to read "stock type" seat required in the passenger side. They didn't say "stock for that car" so 914 seats were the lightest we could find.

weight reduction

Hey C rock, if you are driving an FC I have alu bumpers for sale. These replace the F/G stock bumpers. Roughly a 30 lb weight savings.
$200 + shipping. I am in Ca also.
