You are saying that reducing your unsprung weight by almost 10lbs per wheel won't make a difference on the street???

That's like a 280lbs weight savings at speed. It makes a huge difference both in acceleration due to less rotational mass/inertia, and in handling... More weight spinning faster is harder to turn.
