yea i know. i like how big they are. i dont like the weight. after looking at the weight list it looks like i may be able to shed 400 lbs including the tranny and rims. which makes me wonder once i change the suspension if the replacement parts will be even lighter.

hmm i wonder how it will handle. im still a major newb but it makes me wonder how the car will be at 3,000 lbs and POSSIBLY lower with this strong engine. too bad its not turbo. and still handling with...

suspension mods+weightloss=?

lol i havnt seen an MKIII under 3000 and still have a decent interior

if you are trying to go for weight loss consider the gas in the tank about 6lbs per gallon

also i have riden with people at autox and having a passager in the car does not seem to really effect lap times

also depending on how much you want to spend, you can get lighter weight rims as well as relocating the battery to the back will take weight from the front and put it in the back
