While talking about weight. I see everywhere that light cars have carbon doors. I hear everywhere that carbon doors are massively lighter than standard doors. The thing is, I also heard that CF hoods are way lighter than OEM hoods, but it doesnt hold for the twins because of the aluminium hood. So does anyone knows how much a carbon door usually weights and how much a OEM door weights? This might be the first thing I do when the car becomes a trailer car if the gains in weight reduction are half as impressive as people say they are.

Just FYI a lot of ultra light stripped cars I see are death traps. If it's a dedicated track car and you've got a light fixed back seat, no airbag, etc., you better have more than a harness bar.

I know there are some security concerns. But the car will never be so extreme. All airbags are still there, rollbar + seat being installed this offseason. If I do decide to do the doors the car will probably be full caged (hence also the fact that I mentioned it was only when it was a trailer car). Im just curious of the data, because I dont need the extra safety of a full cage now with my stock doors and airbags in place. If I do decide to shell out the cash for CF doors and finish up the cage, I need to know that I will at least come out with the same weight.

Again, this is a TT car. I will never do competitif wheel to wheel racing on it. I've seen way too many people with lots of cash and virtually 0 skill playing bumper cars in wheel to wheel racing. I dont have that kind of money and I certainly wont enjoy putting my car out there for their pleasure.

You can definitely do it right and have it be lightweight AND safe.

Also, I think more TT cars should have full cages. The TRD Griffon is a fantastic car but it seriously bothers me that it has minimal safety equipment. No cage, not even a roll bar, and a poorly mounted harness system that wouldn't pass tech at 99% of track events. It's irresponsible for a factory backed build (that many will try to emulate) to have such a half-assed approach to safety.

You mean no dash, door panels, with stock seat and a harness bar isn't safe?

Whoa, check out the angle of the harness behind the seats. WTF? That's terrible.
