Supposedly it is lighter, but nobody's actually come back with any figures. I can't give any as no evo 4 yet.

Personally, I would always run with the diff covers. You never know what you're going to pick up in a race, even when you're in a supposedly 'clean' environment.

If you ditch them on the basis of weight, then you are already struggling.....

so the car is quite heavy if you consider all the optional parts that you have in the car to achieve that weight. Not surprising at all seeing the number of screws...

The Alloy up rights do weigh a bit.... but ..it comes to the weight limmit that I race at so ...it does the trick for me

there are places to drop weight from the EVO4 though..

OK, I've given in and ordered one with a Ti kit. When I know some numbers, I will post them
