100 LBS IS CHEAP HORSEPOWER 8) 8) THE LESS WEIGHT YOU HAVE TO GET MOVING AND HAUL THE DISTANCE THE BETTER

IF YOU APPLY SEVERAL WIEGHT REDUCTIONS TOGETHER IT ADDS UP QUICK/ OR YOU CAN JUST SPEND BIG BUCKS FOR BIG HORSEPOWER AND JUST FORCE YOUR WAY TO THE BETTER ET.

$5000.00 IS A GOOD STARTING POINT!!!! ops: ops:
:shock: :shock:

isn't there a chart or a saying stating that every 100lbs you remove has same effect on how car runs as to adding xx amount of horsepower to engine?SEEMS LIKE I HEARD THIS SOMEWHERE ONCE.

no i;m not going to drive it on the street. i have fiberglass door and lexan windows for the car but everyone i talk to about installing the doors and lexan they want a arm or leg or both, so i just thought i would remove the door motors and glass and install the lexan for now. man it's hard when you are doing this stuff by your self for the first time. :cry:
