Thinking the same. Any body parts mods will come much later.

Thanks for the roof comparisons Steve. I would love to know what a sunroof weighs even though I could not live without mine.

Not the biggest saving weight wise. But removing the weight from the highest point will make a substantial difference. Lowering the centre of gravity, should increase stability and allow the suspension to work even better. Especially in a car where all unsprung weight has been removed.

This combined with CFRP Hood & Boot will be a pretty good weight saving.

Unfortunately in our cars, there is only so much weight that can be taken out easily.

I only used mine a handful of times previously, so am never likely to get another one.

My thoughts are the same. I am probably will wait to see what Ohlins come up with for the 1M.

The fact is with that much unsprung remove, the suspension might need to be tuned quite differently.

Have it booked in at 8am tomorrow. Looks like one wheel got knocked a bit and had a rash (even before it hits the road ), but it is only minor, and can be fixed.
