Touche, those numbers came from 350z-tech and I think they're a reliable source for info. And you aren't the first one to think of PB&J...ever since I started getting called by my last name in 6th grade, I've heard that.Sentientbydesign wrote:Smockers83 (I always think of PB&J when I see your name). I've seen those numbers for the 19s. I want to believe them, but the one thing I've learned on NICO is never take a report and repeat it as fact unless you're sure and since I'll have the opportunity to check this myself, I might as well.
2 reports of the same weight will definately help sceptics more than one
I'd check the chassis flex between a mustang and a G35, then compare the "luxury" items in both.coolbratva wrote:I still can't believe that g only weighs around 50lbs less than 05 mustang gt. I mean mustang was always known as some heavy muscle car. Where g has most of the parts made out of aluminum.
Yup yupFound that out the 'hard' way by getting beat at my first auto-x with the car. I did my thing and removed all the items I could, but the rear was real tail happy. Took advice from a fellow z driver and put it back in, and the rear was more planted.Sentientbydesign wrote:Did some quick updates to the list. Steve was right about the door inserts. I think the weight distribution makes them feel heavier than they actually are. 10lbs still seems like a lot to me. Especially since it's all plastic (EPS is still plastic as far as I'm concerned).
There's approximately 61lbs that can be shed from the trunk. More than that if you start pulling the formed carpet off the side walls and scrape the sound deadening material off of the metal (NOT RECOMMENDED).
If anyone does ditch those items, just realize you might lose some traction as those items sit right above the rear wheels.
