In going through the manual last night, I did the math on purchasing/using Titanium screws...$150 (Lunsford) to do the whole car minus the little grub and set screws. Putting Ti screws through out will take a heck of a lot of weight out of any car (17.5 minded) heh heh!

I put a bunch of titanium in my b4.2. Now I need a bunch of ballast to make minimum

I'll wait to have the car before I decide that it needs weight taken out.

I'd rather be too light than too heavy. You can always add weight back if necessary and you have the flexibility to decide where to put it.

Hideeho
Adding the weight back in to make minimum is the whole point of reducing weight. Light weight is good, balanced weight is even better. Adding the weight back in to balance the buggy (cross weights, but especially for handling) is where reducing the weight of the true benefits of lightening the buggy comes from.

+1 absolutely agree. I can put the weight where it needs to be.

For those of you that have pre-ordered from Tower, do you get charged immediately or when the item becomes available?
