Any major weight loss would have a positive effect on the cars performance....

Its all a question of power to weight ratio...

105 weighs about 1300-1500kg...with 101bhp = shite power/weight ratio!!!

If you have a light driver (about 60-75kg), and strip out the rear seats, spare wheel, bonnet replaced with carbon or perspex....and general shit like no ICE at all...


But then thats no use for day to day driving!!!

it is a nice thought tho, if only it were as simple as taking out the spare wheel and tool kit!

What ya areally want is MORE POWER and a lighter car like the Saxo (under 1000kg)....but who wants a Saxo???.....not me anymore!!! he he he........


Cars like VW, Audi are like tanks.....weigh a fookin shite load but most have a substancial power wedge...

F1....weigh about 600-750kg but with a 600bhp lump made from carbon or some other light shit...

Same principal with bikes....heavy rider = less performance!

go mad :D i had a little stage in my cars life where i jsut stripped it out completely :eek:oops: , no dash, no passenger/rear seats, doors cards, boot linings, parcel shelf, spare wheel, tool kit and anything else i could. It was MAD :twisted: LOADS of noise, noticably quicker and it started to slightly oversteer :mrsmiley: \:D/
