Dont know about the weight but the fuel consumption above 40mph is lower with aircon than with the windows down.

Still, It should save you 10kg I would have thought and maybe allow better airflow to the radiator.

Personally I'd keep the A/C. The weight saving is not even worth a mention in a road car.

Its a major weight saving.

Remove the A/C rad and stick your oil cooler in the slot. Remove the pump, plumbing and that funny aluminium bottle, that saves a fair bit.

Drive car hard, get really hot, sweat buckets and save about another 10 kilos!

;)

Garage Bomber hasn't any A/C. Keith Cowie hasn't. Gary Passingham hasn't. Tim didn't in the some of his. Andy Barnes probably has because he likes to appear cool.... ;)

In truth, it is a bit extreme.
