More Weight savings showed up over the last couple of days..

Seats With NO bracket Yet..



My uber Secret Rear Brake upgrade With KARTBOY goodness.... -3.1 lbs per corner.. total -6.2 lbs off the rear. which will compensate for the Trailer hitch I am adding to tow a tire trailer..





Coming together... Fighting weight should be around 2535lbs or so.. We'll see when I get it all together and get it on the scales..

The factory rear rotors are lighter, why did you switch?

What rear calipers are those and why haven't you considered to use something similar (Subaru) for the front (instead of Stoptech or Wilwood)?

Also would a removable roof rack be no option (instead of the trailer)?

Budget...is the big thing.. The rears are 2pot Subaru...which will match up nicely with my Stop-tech Fronts.. the whole system : Stop-tech front/Subaru 2pot rear was less than a Front kit from either Brembo or AP Racing...and I should have the same or better stopping power..

I was just looking at pulleys on ft86speedfactory, and according to their numbers and the numbers listed here: http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1144924 the weights are:

Crank
1.00 - Agency Power
1.02 - Beatrush
0.88 - Buddy Club
0.75 - Go Fast Bits
1.00 - Kartboy
1.20 - Perrin
0.81 - Raceseng
1.75 - Tomioka

Alternator
.170 - Beatrush
.220 - Buddy Club
.180 - Go Fast
.192 - Raceseng
.150 - Tomioka

Water pump
.750 - Beatrush
.880 - Buddy Club
.500 - Go Fast
.565 - Raceseng*
.500 - Tomioka


*I'm keeping the Raceseng waterpump highlighted in red since it's clearly a specific number. All the other water pump numbers look like estimates or rounded off numbers.

Where is the weight listed? I must've missed it.

Indeed I did. Kartboy is 1 pound, according to ft86speedfactory.com.

Oh! I see them now. I originally read that thread at work and the photos didn't show up. I'm on my personal computer now and can see them. Thanks!

Apparently I've got a pretty thorough exhaust/headers/pipes weight thread going. I just posted with a few numbers and asking for information and people have added plenty of numbers in the last few hours. No legitimately confirmed numbers, such as photos of scale readings, but it's a start. Maybe once it matures, we can combine it with this one.

-42.3lbs with this method

I think that is the spirit of an enthusiast. For maximum performance and less excuses, that is the way to go. Losing weight never lies. Not sure if all the aftermarket (bolt ons) are as trustworthy in all dynos...and atmospheric conditions. People (non-enthusiast) might think a little strange though.
