Looking good dude! Love the livery, i like the addition of the lightweight parts. Any idea what the weight is? What are you aiming for?

Well this is not my car lol, but the tuner wants to reduce the weight around 400 pounds.

Can’t believe someone has ripped out the whole of this car already, crazy. Although to be fair if I had the money for it I’d prob do it ha ha. Looks good with that livery. Be interesting to see how much weight has been taken out. The oem seats look like they would be heavy, are they?

I agree, the only way I'll do this is that I buy 2, 1 for daily drive and 1 for racing lol.

That's crazy!! Fair play for ripping into a new car like that and it will make some race car

Is this your own build? What series will it be used in?

Absolutely amazing! And those light weight panels look like they fit so perfect too. And those gains on the dyno looks like these cars have a lot of potential for power!

I wish the car was mine lol.

It competes against EVOs, Celicas and other production series cars.

On its debut it finished on 3rd place :)

I think this car had the ability to go to around 400 hp easily, on stock internals.

The only problem I think tuners will have to figure out is how to get traction on a FF car with that kind of power and torque.
