Thanks! I like this stuff. What about the Airbags, steel trunk, drive shaft, and OEM exhaust pieces?

It ain't cheap, but it knocks 25 lbs. off the nose in 5 minutes, lowers the center of gravity, and improves front to rear weight balance. There's not much else on the car that can do that so easily! We're almost done with our custom mount for it. It's going to be a slick, lightweight little aluminum unit.
True dat.. I 'only' have a Deka going in mine..

The 17 inch oem tire is listed on Tire Rack at 20 pounds. If the stock wheel/tire combo is 41.4 pounds, then we're looking at approximately 21.4 pound wheels!

Stock wheel = 21.4 pounds?

Can anyone confirm...that is something than can be improved upon tremendously...

Has anyone managed to weigh the stock suspension yet?
My set of RS*R coilovers has a shipping weight of approx 30kg including packaging. Just curious what OEM weight is. I'll only be swapping mine out in about 2 weeks so I can post if no one else does. In the mean time it'd be much appreciated if someone beats me to it

Just when I thought I'd shaken that weight savings demon monkey off my back from my NA Miata days...

Great thread, thanks for 'enabling'!
