What if I leave each tube on its own instead of joining them into one big 3 inch?
(I plan to have it to one side say 10-15inches behind the front left wheel)

Adam,

I have a carbon prop at the house you can look at if you need to see what they look like

we're needing the car weighed again soon to get correct classification for GT Cup but accoring to Fee the car was weighed at 1411kg with the tank full AND her in the seat.

So some basics backwards working... 60kg for Fee, 32kg fuel, so 1410-60-32 = 1318kg

12 US gallon tank = 45litres = 31.8kg

Thats will 8l of oil, big 4l steel bottled fire system, redundant ATTESSA gear (ECU, G Sensor etc still in)

Other ECU's - can someone clarify what the ECU is thats mounted in the driver side rear 1/4? HICAS or Fuel pump control?

Tis probably the fuel pump control. On the 33 its above the o/s/r strut.
You can ditch that too.

I dont think the fuel ecu will just work when un-plugged, it will need some re-wiring.
But just use the earth to the normal ecu to contoll the pump through a new relay and power source.

Abs- just remove and make up new brake lines. i dont think it affects the attesa like on the 33's and 4's.

Worthwhile swiss cheesing the chassis / shell with a punch? How much weight would really be saved?

that bit of metal is long gone on ours...


But lightweight headlights/blanks are a good suggestion. We run 1 vent. but for TA you need lights (in the regs) so some blanks with LEDs or something would work

So yo dont have the metal bumper? No protection against a crash? Or did you weld a bar instead? I have only seen grp intakes, not the other headlamp side, it shouldnt be hard to make a mold and diy..

I removed front and rear bumper mounting bars a while back! Im with Adam that if you're going to have a sore one, the bumper bar aint gonna be much of a help. Weigh a ton as well (well, not literally!!)
Im going to be moulding LH and RH light GRP blanking pieces soon. Give me a shout if you want one made

TT - Yes please!

Crash bars - yup, both front/rear have been removed from ours too. Front was chopped up anyway for the big Trust 4" FMIC, and a bit mangled from various tyrewalls.

I actually did crash once driving in the street, it saved the radiator and stuff deeper in, interccoler broke aswell as headlamps and bonnet but stuff deeper in wasnt affected so yeah its better than nothing, I wouldnt have liked the chassis or pulleys to be affected for instance...

I've removed the ABS, as far as i know it will work fine but leave the wheel sensors in. I've just replaced the lines with braided hoses and good to go! Saves so much weight the pump is ridiculous!

you'll never get anywhere near your dream of 1000kg if you arent willing to lose things like the crash bars :S
