Rear seat deletion...

I am currently building a 80% track and 20% driver. I would like the most advantages on the track as possible. I am having a hard time deciding whether to take out the interior or leave it as be. Possible weight savings could be around 300 pounds. Thoughts......

Thanks

Will have a sales thread up soon. There will be a carbon and fiberglass option. Also there will be a closed flat panel option for M owners that are not running a roll bar.

Seems a bit gaudy too with all that CF. Ironically, it's probably a better fit for a show car than a track car.
