Hi

In all the measures done in winter, it is exactly 9.1 kg less.

The two parts here gave 1.1 kg.

Tom, what's all in aid of? Drag racing? Trackwork? 100-200 times? Hillclimbing? There must be a point to this? Are you going to start removing your own organs and limbs to make yourself lighter?

Tom, why are you doing this? Do you want to drag race, do 100-200 timings, trackdays?

Wonder if he tucks his "kit" between his legs, to move the weight closer to the middle of the car for better balance?
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there!

Hi

What was missing in my collection "of lightness" are the expensive GT mirror feet made of aluminum.

Good used is rare and so I had to strike.

It's not an answer... it's a question. Why all of this weight reduction, what's the reason for it?
