You often hear that 'N1' headlights are much lighter than the GT-R's projector headlights.

R32 GT-R 'Projector' headlights are 2.7kgs each including bulbs.
N1/non-projector headlights are 2.2kgs each including brackets and bulbs.
Not a huge saving.

Cheers

Good point TT. You have just removed the Atessa and replaced it with RIPs setup? Why?

I do not do any circuit racing with the car. I mainly drag the car. I rarely drive my car in the street. A few other cars have done it also before in the past. http://www.speedhunters.com/2014/02/parachutes-panic-stationsa-1300whp-gt-r-street-car/


my setup is complete different than the one above.

Ok so i almost have my engine done and ive been removing everything from the car to leave just the shell, trans, subframes and suspension in place for when it will be moved to the cage installing and painting workshop.
Now im at the stage of removing metal i wont be using to shed weight.

So my question is basically what parts of the shell are structural and i better not touch and which are just metal i can shave off?
