Cool Weight Reduction.

Thinking about gutting the trunk out, weighing everything, and debating if its worth losing. 35lbs to change acceleration rate slightly?

100 pounds is worth a 1 tenth in the 1/4 mile.

35 lb. is about 1% of the weight of the car. Saves 1 tenth second accelerating 0 to 60 MPH.
