However yes I've read the old threads but I'm trying to revive this topic.
So I have some questions since I have only owned the car for 9 months.
My plan is to still keep the interior and a daily-able car, but I'm willing to change the driver / passenger seats in the future , but thats pretty much it for interior, not going to remove carpets etc.
I have already made a carbon fiber center console and removed the old aluminum one because it was peeling.
I may or may not remove the rear seats. They seem to be just foam and almost no point in removing them since it seems already extremely light, however if someone tells me to lose em ,lol I will custom make carbon fiber rear seat-ish covers. Since there is absolutely no room for anyone to sit back there anyhow.
I want to get the weight down as much as possible.
Is a goal of 1400 kgs realistic?
I have a stillen exhaust system catless, and no mufflers .
I have BBS LMs which should save some weight over stock rims #26 lbs, however would the nismo wheels save more weight then my BBS ?
I have a set of lightweight 19x 9.5 square setup wheels #19.5 lbs (rim alone) , is it possible to use these with a thicker sidewall tire without causing damage to the Traction control system?
I plan on changing the rotors over to girodiscs.
I plan on swapping as much bodyparts to carbon as possible.
-the rear trunk, hood, fenders, and lastly doors
I will be making a customer carbon fiber wing , front wing, and rear diffuser , side splitters.
And I also plan on swapping the rear glass to lexan but keeping the front glass for safety reasons.
after searching I am not 100% sure if our cars come with a carbon fiber main driveshaft or not??
maybe if someone can chime in and help me with some of these questions?
*** I AM willing to cut out , unbolt parts of the frame to swap to carbon fiber . Has anyone had experience swapping out the subframe? *** I might be planning on building a carbon fiber subframe ***
I am obsessed with power to weight ratio.
I would rather lighten this thing before I tune the ECU.
Thanks for any help / advice you can offer B)
