Soundproofing tar removal - ~6.5kilos and that is something like ~14.3lbs

Heated side mirror with craked mirror - ~1.26kg = ~2.7lbs

OEM intake with filter and w/o resonator box - ~2.4kg = ~5.3lbs

I have allready threw lots of parts to carbage while doing my trackday beater, i have few interior trims left like a, b and c pilars trims and so on, on my daily beater i have at my closet abs pump and sttuff, if needed to scale them?

Either your scale is off.. or you didn't remove all the tar... Because it weighs nearly double that.

all what i have there, maybe behind dashboard is some more, and i think i left few bits on rearwheel "fenders"? - but no way double amount to get 12-13kg.
And maybe my CB3 is less insulated than CB7?

And if you mean with "all the tar" that what is under our car too, i dont count that "soundproofin tar", cos in finland, we but some more "tar" our cars to prevent them to rustaway at winters

CB3 carpet: ~4,6kg = ~10,1lbs

B-pilar lower trims, those what are under windowline: ~0,3kg each = ~0,66lbs each

Behind our backseat is those "triangle"-trims: ~0,25kg each = ~0,55lbs each

Trims from our backdoors holes, that "treshold"(?) and the upper plastic trim all four ~0,37kg = ~0,81lbs

Weight reduction is one of those areas where "go big or go home" really applies. Either gut the shit out of the car, or leave it alone is my opinion.

Just like my instructor would always say, if you want fast. Go weight reduction. Of course, this involves performance work of the engine as well.

I know I'm 2 months late... but I agree, to an extent.

Some people don't realize what they can remove, or what will make a difference. The FULL AC system removal sheds quite a bit of weight.

Some things can shed a significant amount of weight when it's all totaled up, and the lack of functionality won't even be missed. Other things (such as the rear seat, which is actually quite light) are ditched with little or no useful effect at all.

2point6's car was a relatively comfortable daily driver with his 250whp H22 in it, and he was at about 2600lbs.

at the bottom it says 1 pound of unsprung weight = 10 static weight.

and that 10lbs of static weight equal 1 hp.

So if you stripped down your car to weight 500lbs less and look like complete shit vs getting some unltra light weight wheels and tires. You could essentially save your self from looking like fanboy .

iv always been big on weight reduction but with our vehicle laws it makes it hard. like if i removed my back seat i would have to re vin and re register the vehicle as a 2 seater and thats a good few hundred dollars alone.
as it is the CB 4 door weighs about 1250kg or something which is still about 100kg lighter than a Euro R

i know the only real weight reduction i have is an odessey pc680 battery, a gutted trunk, power steering pump and bracket removal and the rest is weight shed from changing engine and exhaust parts. before the battery and the power steering. i got mine down to this.


optima red top = 35lbs
odessey = 14.5lbs

vibrant muffler = 21lbs
varex muffler = 18lbs

h23 manifold = 22lbs with no stacks
skunk2 with adapter = 17lbs

no car seat, lol = -23lbs

2732lbs - 51.5lbs = 2680.5lbs full interior
cruise, a/c, power window, power door locks, keyless entry, 6 speaker stereo. its nice. also the car is fully hushmatted(sound deadened) minus the roof panel.

my dx coupe is gutted right now with only the driver's seat, dash, headliner and carpet for interior. Might rip EVERYTHING out but the seat and dash and get it weighed. Im quite curious as well...
