Stock plate is 20g
My 2mm CF plate is 7g
Those are numbers I got on the scale. I believe I saw somewhere that the milled FT plate is 13g?

It's a custom job. But it should weigh the same as any other carbon plate of that thickness since it is in the stock plates shape

3 gear, titanium screws, and smaller electronics can make a huge difference in weight of your car. But also don't get lightweight happy there are several very heavy 1600+ gram cars out there killing it in stock class. Invest in tires and track time not all the Kool-Aid drinkers lightweight crap
