Does anyone know the weights on the following?
2x Door cards:
Does anyone know the weight of the standard bonnet?
It’s full alloy so I wouldnt bother replacing it because it’s not worth the expense
So just cut out parts from the underneath and get rid of hinges and catch and use aero catches to fix it to the car?
Honestly I wouldn’t bother. I would go aero catches at the front but not the near. If it is removable you will damage the paint on removal and refit each time. I’ve been there and done that lol.
Lol ok thanks for the advice, much appreciated
I did a lot of weight removal with my 200.
From memory best results came from ditching the entire air con system, replacing the Recaros with 1 piece buckets & replacing the battery with an agm type.
Other stuff like losing the rear seats & the rear wiper assy & stereo system helped along with replacing the door cards & steering wheel assy & rear view mirrors with lightweight alternatives all helped.
Fitting the Akra exhaust & Toyosport manifold also saved weight.
I removed more than 100kg from mine. But fitting the cage put about 30kg back in.
There’s plenty of effective stuff you can do before replacing body panels.
Oh & I had the pitking bonnet pins fitted to mine but that was due to requirements for national race events.
