No, I will this Sunday at TWS. I feel the same way but two of the tracks I go to (COTA and MSRH) are pretty hard on brakes, so I figured I would give them a try.

Congrats! Enjoy, the constant modding and track time! I would love to meet up sometime, but the car is at the shop right now for repairs and to remove more stuff! You can never be light enough!

Yes! Complete HVAC, driver/passenger windows, regulators and motors and anything else we can think of. Any suggestions? A full cage will be next which will add back quite a bit of weight.

Lexan windows elsewhere. Cf headlight blanks. Further gut the doors since windows out so cage can intrude into door pockets.

I like the headlight idea. How much do they weigh? Yes, doors will be gutted and glass removed!
