I have seen a couple of other MK I TTs on the tracks over here in Germany. They race as touring cars mostly.
1880lbs - I'd love to have that with my power
As it were, I was pretty happy to see my car well under 3000lbs My plan is to keep the TT when I move onto the next car, gut it and cage it, and make it a track whore...I wonder how light I could get it without sinking a ton of money into it!
I'm Phat cause I'm force fed.
Sex should be like a Civic; slow, obscene, and loud enough for the neighbors to hear.
With both rear seats out, some lighter front seats, and an AC delete there should be another 100lbs that can be saved. I'm not sure how daily driving a manual steering rack is, but I've thought about that as well. I'd really like to get a lot more off the front end!
All AC stuff
Rear tow hook
One piece race seats
Fiber glass rear fake 3.2 spoiler
All plastic in engine bay
All emissions deletes

If theirs any thing you did I didn't do let me know
So with all that it weight 3040
When I look at the door it says car weight 3770 ????that's kinda scary for a small car
- lighter wheels and tires (I saved over 50lbs there) - the added huge benefit of reducing rotating mass
- Ballast under rear bumper (if you have a 225 TT) - it's 35-40lbs.
- Lightweight calipers and two-piece rotors (more rotating mass here, but not very far out from the axis of rotation)
