For someone that uses it everyday I would say go for it but Ryan couldn't even figure out how to use the motive pressure bleader I let him borrow.

Tribochagad foy shilinda. B230 with 14 lbs of boost. Had no problem taking out a 5.0 foxbody on i470. Barley looks like it runs but is capable of 12s if he had LSD and real tires.

Lexan windows are cool and relatively cheap but they really don't save much interms of weight. I think you only get like 6lbs with the rear window and 2lbs per each rear 1/4. The real benefit is being able to cut holes in the rear window which allows the air that comes in through the side window (which have to be down) a place to exit. Reducing what they call a balooning effect. Like below.
I would double check on the window weight thing...I think you can can shave 50-100lbs on windows.

I remember reading this is one of the reasons the CSL couldn't get DOT approved.

The CSL had different windows and that alone was 35-40lbs less. The rear window weighs a lot.

I think it was just a plastic rear window on the CSL. Not sure though.
