been doing some reading, and if you remove the passenger seat, rear seat (which i planned on taking out for a RSD anyways, and the spare tire and etc it removes 105LBS from the car which is goot for a tenth i believe, if im going to race i might as well go all out eh?

Re: Welp im off to the garage

I guess my fat ass heavy chrome 18" wheels and sub box and amps dont help. I heard every 5lb added to a wheel takes off 1hp about?

Actually it's a LOT more substantial than that.

The "rule" is (depending on the distance from the center of rotation) for every POUND removed or added to any rotating mass equals 70 pounds of stationary mass.

As this weight is added closer to the center of rotaion, this formula decreses a bit, but the farther away from center it gets the more that the formula increases.

I don't know the exact distances and what they relate to, but rest assured your car will go faster with light 15's front and back than it will with street wheels and tires. (this is also due to rolling resistance and friction coefficients)

its a race gas additive. $15 a can and it ups my ocatne to 115 Octane. Its the only "octane booster" that doesnt leave crap in the tank

You should just get the Cam 2 at the track. It is a bit pricey, but you don't have to worry about a mixing problem. I always used the purple, it was 116 octane, and it smells good.

Don't know if it's true but I heard that for every 100lbs shed it's like gaining 10hp?

that would mean that having a 200 pound passenger is like losing 20 horsepower. :dunno:
