I got bumped from street prepped to street modified (huge bump) just because replacing my intercooler required me to remove Ford's stupid Active Grill Shutter system. Removing a system from the car instantly bumps you up to modified. Nevermind that an intercooler gave me 0% performance improvement.It’s certainly possible. But I also think SCCA has plenty of idiotic rules for Solo classing so who knows what they will do
Nice! I've performed a driver mod to lose 9 lbs so far. Hoping for 20-30 total by late October and 60 all in all.I've already dropped the car's weight by 13 pounds since July 1st. I've matched a carbon fiber roofs benefit lol. Hoping I can squeeze out another 10-15 pounds.
The cold weather and tech packs may add quite a few pounds. The sound system is probably more than just 2 more speakers and the phone charger may add more than you thinkBased on the press release today, curb weights are:
Core grade 3,252 pounds
Core grade with Performance Package 3,262 pounds
Circuit Edition 3,285 pounds
MORIZO Edition 3,186 pounds
My questions are where the extra weight on the Circuit Edition is coming from? The CE is supposedly 23lbs heavier than the Core with PP, even though it has the carbon roof!
I get a few pounds for the extra speakers in the premium sound system, and I can’t imagine the heated/suede seats and qi charger add more than a couple pounds. Is the vented hood really heavy? Roof spoiler? Or is the carbon roof actually heavier than the steel roof?
But by my math: rear seat, rear door window motors and speakers, and rear wiper are good for ~80lbs combined (assuming 20lbs benefit (18.25 vs 23lb ea) for the BBS Forged wheels over the cast Enkei wheels based on GRY wheel weights)
I thought the stock system is 6 speakers, JBL 8 with an amp (yeah I guess that’s maybe 10-15lbs)The cold weather and tech packs may add quite a few pounds. The sound system is probably more than just 2 more speakers and the phone charger may add more than you think
That assumes no weight reduction from the carbon roof…I believe the Circuit stereo also upgrades the other speakers, so they may be heavier too. Plus most of those things need several feet of wire which has weight too. Figure 3lbs per new speaker, 5lbs for the venting on the hood, 2lbs for the qi system and 5lbs per seat in heating wire, boom 23lbs.
