    i got my 2000 saturn sc2 down to 1950lbs i did alot of what you did but i kept my sun roof an carpet an most of the interior i replaced alot of parts like the hood with light weight parts, hood is carbon fiber the trunk was custom its fiberglass, an i replaced the factory exhaust. that was a lot of weight i replaced my sunroof glass an back side windows with plexy glass. it is still my daily driver so i didn't want it completely gutted

    All that work for less than a second shaved off? And now the vehicle is actually useless except for racing... Which it is now *marginally* better at. Seems like a colossal waste of time, money and energy.

    you should have done ac delete muffler delete and windshield whiper pulley delete with some under drive pulleys too. that stuff is good for at least another 100lbs would get you even 0.2 faster thatd be 1 whole second. thats like adding 50 hp+ with everything removed.

    I take it the race class dictates that you need 4 doors? Just asking as it seems using a 2 door would be lighter. Also I am surprised you are allowed a sunroof.

    You removed a lot more of your car's resale value than weight. I like most of your videos but this one is pretty ridiculous. Isn't simply removing the seats, spare tire and fluids most of your weight savings? All easily reversible. Gutting plastic trim panels and wire harnesses is a waste of time. How much weight does your roll cage add, 400 pounds right back in?

    , unrelated question about a 2016 Chevy Cruise. Why would the dashboard and monitor shut down while driving for as long as 15 seconds, and then come back on to normal? The driver has dealt with this three different times in the last few months. A person that can diagnose has yet to get it to happen for them while driving.

    It's amazing how much weight came out considering you still have AC, bumper crash structures, canister, stock manifold, stock exhaust, cats, stock wheels and brakes, etc. I'm sure the exhaust alone must weigh about 50-60 lbs with those thick pipe walls and many mufflers. When you change the exhaust, make sure you keep the stock H pipe location because it massively affects torque and horsepower. You can make an X pipe instead of the H pipe, just make sure you don't move it's location. Awesome video, Chris. It gave me some good memories of gutting my Civic racecar and I wish I could do it all over again.
