so i suck at drag racing but with just weight reduction and some bolt ons you could probubly get high 12's

the wife sucks at recording video but... yeah

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bP2q-QJ5Oec

my best run was
R/T ...422
60" ... 2.167
330 ... 5.898
1/8 ... [email protected]
1000 ... 11.571
1/4 ... [email protected]

i might have gotten better with a few runs but i was booted cause i was going to fast for street so i have to come back with a helmet and stuff

the brackets weigh roughly the same im pretty sure... of course... i'll weigh them when i get mine, but generally racing seats weigh enywhere from 9-19 lbs depending on quality and price and such... so even if the brackets weighed 10 lbs more you'd still save weight... besides... racing seats are cooler looking and have slots for your harness right?

im trying to get some of the locals to let me weigh their stock stuff but it looks like people are not very willing to take their car apart just to weigh things... keep making requests as you feel the need but here's the thread of things i've asked for from the locals... if you have anything to add please say so

Thanks man for the info ... very useful, but I think there is something wrong

The hatch can't be 21Kg and the spare tire 16Kg ... The spare tire you can left with one hand and without leverage, but on the other hand, the hatch is very difficult to left while its installed on the car (with leverage), thus, I think it would be more than that. could it be that the scale did a 360 before landing on the 21Kg mark.

Thanks,

Az

mmm nope... no problem. besides being awkawrdly large the hatch really only weighs 10lbs more than the tire... keep in mind there's no glass wiper motor and anything else. i guess i can go take a video for you if you really want

so i finally got my new wheels so... more stuff to weigh

18x13.75 rear wheel

and the weight

18x10 front wheel

and the weight

stock 03 track wheel w/ tire

and the weight


when i get tires mounted on the new wheels i'll weigh them and i might get the tire dismounted from the stock wheels and weigh them tireless. you'll notice that the extra thickness contributes very very little to overall weight. the track wheel/tire was a rear. i'll probably weigh the fronts as well if i remember to.

Surprinsingly heavy for such a little package!

ok... sorry for all the dead time without updates, i've been in VA (not home in WA) for the past few months for the Navy... i got my racing buckets for christmas but no chance to weigh them yet...
when i get home in april i'll go ahead and weigh the bucket brackets,
the buckets,
then if it doesn't destroy the seat or anything i'll weigh the stock cloth seats without brackets
and weigh the brackets...
also hopefully i'll have tired on those beastly wheels by then and can weight those with tires and then
weigh the track rims without tires


anyone have a good weight for the transmission?

THERE WILL BE NO UPDATES UNTIL APRIL

that's when i get back home from VA

i'll start a "back order" request list though so you can all rest assured i heard you
kno - stock bumpers... i assume you mean the SPU bumper covers not the actual crush beams

kuhan - Do you know what the weight on 08 350Z F&R non-brembo brake rotors? Thanks.

aalzuhair - i'll see what i can do about making a video or something to settle your concerns... the most error i have been able to really detect is maybe a 1-2 lb error due to the scales sticking a little... but i fixed that with WD-40... maybe i'll re-weigh the hatches for you

mcarther101 - fenders... again i'll have to go to the dealership or something but i'll try to do what i can

multiple people - exhaust... i threw up the stock cats, i'll see what i can do about finding some stock exhaust parts



everyone feel free to keep asking for weights and i'll try to keep this list updated
also i'll TRY to go back and take pics of the parts being weighed that have been added by users with just text... OR you guys can start taking pics of weighing things too and throw them up

this thread really is an attempt to debunk the "take my word for it" method of part weights

Installed some RevShift solid motor mounts last night. They weighed .8 lbs each vs 4.2 for the stockers.

not to be too huge a dick but... this thread is for pictures of part weights. the whole point is to throw out the "rumor mill" method of finding the weight of something

-Factory door and 'behind your head' speakers


I think it would be reasonable to shave 200-300lbs off the car while maintaining the front interior (dash, carpet, door panels), and not spending much money at all. Just depends what you are willing to run.
i have the wiper somewhere... i'll see if i can find it
don't have the bose... i'll keep checking with the dealership
don't have leather... i'll keep checking with the dealership and no the cloth have no motors
the door skin weight is on the first page kind of in the middle
and you're asking about the speakers themselves? i think i have those somewhere... or at least something equivelent


and to anyone else... sry for no updates for so long... been sick, just moved across the country... twice... new job... other such worthless excuses
