as title really
i've started stripping out my 32 gtr
took out the back seats, parcel shelf, speakers ,amp, sub box' spare wheel ,all boot trim,various other plastic bits and pieces 'jack

how much weight is is possible to lose from a gtr just by stripping it without fitting lightweight items
and in the real world how much difference will this make on the track

just with the item's i've already removed which must be at least 60-70kilos
the rear end seems more secure it dosen't slide as much on tight corners
or is it just in my head ...:confused:

Weight saving is always going to give bigger gains than performance tuning, esspecially if its free! The biggest performace gains will be seen loosing some unsprung weight though - that is stuff that is connected to the hubs (brakes, wheels, tyres etc).

Look at getting rid of things like aircon and headlamp washer systems etc if you want to do it properly and replace the front seats with 1 peice, lightweight items. I hear you can loose weight from Hicas systems as well if you remove the whole system.

Stripping out the 32gtr

I read that the Hicas system weighs roughly 25 kilos, so there's quite a saving to be made there.
