Right. Sorry, to be clear I'm looking particularly for things that could reasonably be swapped out on a twice-weekly basis. Obviously, having two dedicated cars where the stock car has all sorts of lightweight goodies gives less of a compromise, but I'm not going to replace the drivetrain twice a week. Plus, my driving isn't quite at the point where I'll see much benefit from lightweight drive shafts of I'm truly honest!
