    E pretty much sumed it up. Anything that is not vital for the car to run can come out.

    If you actually drive this car daily, why would you want to destroy your car like that? IMO that is one of the biggest fucking rice outs ever... Don't mean to bag you man but seriously... Don't be an idiot.

    Oh and please tell me what you gain from taking weight from the FRONT of a FRONT wheel drive car?

    well when you take 200 pounds out of a car the car will go faster? Unless you don't agree with the laws of physics

    I understand making a car light will make it faster. (Although 200 pounds really isn't good for shit)

    Weight is Weight.

    If you're having traction issues get better slicks
