Compared to what though? With fuel, driver? Relative to other ten year old 400hp + sports cars it's not that bad. In the real world cars rarely seem to weigh what the manufacturers spec.

Was the GT3 1395kg dry? In that case I am guessing my turbo weighs more than the 1585kg according to wikipedia Very Happy

What's your car's spec, clubsport or non-clubsport?

These car aren't perfect off the production line no matter what anyone says

For a start the factory geo is pants (as you found, I read your CG post Thumb) and other simple improvements which would save weight and further improve the car would include -

Aftermarket wheels eg OZ (mine save 7kg rear axle, 4kg front axle)
H&S centre bypass (11kg)
Recaro buckets (about 15kg saved from memory)
Etc

It all adds up if you want to experiment a little

If I was doing it all again first things I'd do with hindsight is a proper geo and ditch the OEM wheels, massive noticeable improvement from just those 2 things, it'll feel like a brand new car

So, what wheels you going for? Grin
