Lightening up the front of the car

Brainstorming...

Want to shed some weight off the front of the car. I don't want to remove necessary items (i.e. Headlights, etc).

So far I can only think of:

-M3 Kevlar Front bumper support (the aluminum non-m is pretty heavy actually) but I don't even know if it fits..

Throw some ideas out there if you've got them.

I run Hydrogen in all four tires, my un-sprung weight is almost nonexistent ! My only fear is when my brakes get real hot like when I'm in a maximum braking situation, All I can think about right then is Ferdinand von Zeppelin.


It's late,

Keep washer fluid low. Remove silly engine vanity covers. Lower plastic splash shield if your feeling adventurous. Fog lights. Buy those CF fenders from the china ebay mentioned in another thread.

I removed all the plastic shields up front and even the headlight washer system But still even with that stuff and the secondary air pump removed, it's -15lbs. Plus the hood is another -30lbs.

I wish that damn m3 Kevlar bar would fit. Overall around -55lbs total with all that other stuff..not bad right?


Yea it's late, going to bed lol
