Same part numbers for the DCT lines across all cars. I checked.

I got sparco harnesses after a few recommendations and visiting their showroom. Great quality and knowledgeable staff.

i finally have a baseline weight figure for my car- 3,212 lbs without wheels/tires (car is on stands at mrf for a race alignment). i dropped the car off with 1/2 tank of fuel. we could probably add about 240lbs for the zcp wheels and tires. i think we are going to be able to get the weight down below 3,000 lbs pretty easily. this car still has the front and rear door cards, front leather seats, all airbags, front carpet, all speakers, and a full headliner and sound insulation front of the driver's seat.
the eta for my sparco harnesses is about 2-3 weeks and should arrive about the time as my brey krause harness bar.
i picked up a used flossman trunk and drilled it for the wing. the flossman trunk is about 11lbs, but i haven't weighed it myself. the trunk is off at paint along with the carbon fuel door lid. i have yet to get a quote for the plastics4performance windows... i haven't had the car and i have had a lot going on anyways.

3400lb with 1/2 tank is pretty good but we've sen this before and now we need to see more MORE adam.driver.emodarthvader.meme

Also the hub stands probably weigh about 15lb each right?

I have a set of Sabelts on order for the Spec Racer Ford and the lead time is just a ROFL emoji so...

Are you planning to move to lighter weight 18's? That's 25lbs+ right there.

Tons of the well built European track cars are right around the 2900-3000lb mark so it's definitely doable in one of these.

I have apex arc8's for the track. 18x10.5 squared.
They are significantly lighter than the 359's.

i'll ask about a total weight with the zcp wheels, but they are heavy. i run 275/30 and 295/30's on the 359's. i know they max out my small scale's 50lb weight limit and my arc8 18x10.5's with 275/35 nt01's are 45.9lbs. the feeling of the weight delta is significant- i'd estimate it to be about 10lbs. so the zcp wheels with tires are probably in the 55lb range or a little more. i have decent strength and the effort needed to handle 359's is significantly more.

i've also said it before i can immediately tell the difference in wheel weight when switching between the 359's and arc8's. i don't understand how people can't.

If you keep front carpet and remove speaker-sub under the front seats you will have to seal the floor some how. Also it will leave a hole in the carpet as the speaker grill is what seals it off. I designed a solution. Removing both subs is quick and easy, I have a abs/acrylic panel to seal the carpet and a cover lid to cover the hole in the carpet if you chose to keep the carpet. If you remove the carpet none is needed.
Speaker-subs are 12 lbs for both including the housing and sealing panel and cover is 1 lbs for both so 11 lbs savings.
Bottom pic is off the web, 3 others are my car.

There are various types of holes, and some are more interesting than others. The most dense holes are black holes, though some are lighter than others depending on what's shining upon them, or what they might have swallowed. It has been said that Donut holes are some of the fattest of all holes, but a titanium hole is stronger than an aluminum hole. Perhaps carbon fiber holes are the strongest holes of all... even if they are a little rough..

vertical vid for IG, but you get the idea. this is the "pre-drive check" the wing does when you start the car. it is probably the coolest thing i've ever done to my car.
