Geeez . . . under 1700g.
I was really wanting to minimise the hop-ups on this Evo . . . . particularly the porky alloy ones.
Now, ever since you bought those bleedin' scales I can feel myself getting sucked in to a diet program for this car.
Here's the question:
What do we all think is the best bang for the buck "improvements".
I only want stuff that is practical, not just pretty . . . . how I have the cheek to say that after also buying the conversion kit just for the chassis and top deck, I don't know, but hey 19grams is 19grams!
Here's my thinking:
Ti 2-speed shaft - half the weight and it's rotating mass to boot.
Ti mid shaft - ditto.
Ti pillow balls? - pretty pricey, but it is
Ti hinge pins - not enough saving . . . only for the really desperate.
Ti screws - havent seen a kit of screw's yet - dunno the weight involved?
Alloy screws - I've got some of those and will probably use them in low stress places.
Lightweight 2nd gear holder - I'll drill the one we have.
Left side brace - though I can't really justify it.
Alloy hex's - have those, but don't like the weight.
Carbon brake brace - using the one from the R.
Lower engine mounts - got to figure how all this will work with the side belt proximity.
Any other ideas?
