I don't know if they are all the same, but I believe some of the Corbreau seats weigh as little as 8 pounds. They also cost a crapload of money though.

Im getting ones that have an adjustable back, so I am sure that they are going to be a little more than 8 pounds, but definately less than 44. If ya think our seats weigh a lot... ever lifted a stock 8-way power seat, those gotta be at least 100 pounds a piece.

Does anyone know if the DMV weighs your car when you go in for inspection? I went recently and it displayed the weight of the car at about 2530.. I weigh 140lbs [yeah shut up] and it's confusing the hell out of me.

There's the guy I was looking for! Do you know what your car weighs? I know you have that thing lighter than anyone else I know of.

And FDAccord... I'm PTAC #5

the way it sat in those ooooooold ass pics it had a "race weight" (driver included for those non-drag race guys) of 2330. i weight anywhere from 185-195 depending what season it is, LOL(thanksgiving, christmas, etc.).

so, as it sat, it was in the neighborhood of 2150. it is less than that now but im not for sure on an exact #. somewhere under 2,000lbs though i can guarantee that!

Under 2000! Holy crap!


That makes a slightly lightened Civic look like a brick.

anyone know what happened to that thread about how 2point6 lightened his car?
i searched for it, and couldnt find it.
he explained how he removed all that tar from under his carpets, and undercoating and stuff.
and if i remember correctly, he got his car down to 2300 lbs with a full interior!
now that's what i want....a lighter car with a full, usable, comfortable interior.

anyone have more suggestions for weight savings without making your car look like crap?

Well you will have to redo your whole interior, and I will tell you first hand it is a bitch. Just take off all the tar crap, and lay down some lighter, thinner carpet. If you don't mind your trunk looking like crap then strip all that stuff out too. Go ahead and put lighter seats in the inside. You can also take off the exhaust shielding and other shielding stuff.

My NEX bucket racing seats weigh in at about 14lbs each...


My car weighs in at 2760ish with me in it...that was with the gas light on also...

so considering I weigh about 150... it's at 2600ish lbs...

that would be a very difficult task(2300lbs/full interior). i dont see that being possible on anything except maybe a DX trim w/out a/c from the get go. i can tell you first hand that the "tar" stuff on the floor only weighs about 15-18lbs total throughout the entire car.

big weight savers to start with would be seats, full a/c system(~84lbs total), p/s, sunroof, etc.....

I concur...Shedding weight isn't as easy as most people think...

I have stripped everything from the back seats back to the back of the car... every panel imaginable except for the door panels... taken out the PS, AC and alot of other useless crap and I was personally expecting my car to be a little lighter when I weighed it...

unless I go crazy kentucky style and start cutting things out and putting in lexan, I don't think I can realistically drop much more weight...


Maybe it was ludehrt and not 2point6 you were thinking of Wallace... he had a super stripped 4thGen with a mild H22 and he was running times very close to Scott's...

AC is 84lbs? Wow! I still have mine in, but not hooked up. I'm still contemplating using it... My CB7 IS my "good" car, and I use it to drive long trips with my girlfriend as well as for racing fun Although, having no AC saves a LOT of gas in the summer. Not only am I not running that parasitic cooling device, but I usually don't drive cuz my girl would rather waste her own gas for the comfort of AC. Her Civic gets the same mileage with the AC on as my car does without it.

i drove it on a daily basis with it "lookin" almost that bad. it still had factory glass windows in it instead of the lexan and it still had a trunk floor. other than those two things, i drove it a lot. i had the windows tinted with double layer 10 and the front tinted with single layer 20. the car looked bone stock on the outside and you couldnt even see in the windows to notice the gutted interior. the car was a major street racing sleeper as i even cruised around on my Mickey Thompson slicks!

Cruising around on M/T ET drags is a bad idea I found out. Not only are mine illegal but it wears the fuck out of them driving on the street. It was worth it though

i used 2 DC Sports DAC intakes(from an h22 and my f22) and just chopped them up and duct taped them together. pretty ghetto i know, but it does the trick and it saved me some money since i had both items laying around. its all about the budget racing!!

thats why i gutted that car like a fresh fish, its free horsepower!
