Weight Saving on an RS250 Cup

  1. Agreed on the doors btw...recipe for death in a road car. I had FRP doors in my Clio, scary light. I also had carbon doors on my old MR2 back in the day, also scary.

    That sounds ideal pricing to me!

    Aye I've been itching to get mine properly lighter but I'm not going to do so til I have a full cage in it haha, me end goal is 1200kgs
  3. I'll keep you posted when I hear back from them, 1200kg with cage will be doing well I think.

    If there's interest in carbon bonnets, we're looking at potentially doing a run of them over winter if there's enough interest?
  5. I would 100% buy one, no question at all there. Please email me pricing incase it's just me wanting to buy one!
  6. Windows in yet on this?
  7. Not yet, just ordered them earlier this week. £675 or something it was for the 3, 50% weight saving apparently.
  8. Ah you were asking Clint...no clue :smile: He's gone awol, crazy Dutch man.
  9. Hi Guys,
    Thought I would revive an old thread instead of posting a new one, My Megane Rs250 just got off the weigh bridge.......1230KG with no driver and almost 3/4 tank of fuel.

    Car is running with just a Single Sparco Fixed Bucket on light ish 18"s, BC Coil overs, no carpet, no speakers, no stereo, no rear seat belts, light weight lithium battery but still running the rear crash bar and airbags.

    Does any one know how much the rear crash bar weighs?
    How much does the passenger airbag weigh?
    How much does the AC Condensor weigh?
    How much does the sound deadening on the floor weigh?
    Not going to remove the compressor as this is a budget as F*Ck build :smile:
    Anything else I can remove besides the above / below and the sound deadening ?
    May in the future remove all the door cards and rear cards

    Don't remove AC, the downsides far outweigh any weight savings
  11. That’s impressive!
    My Trophy R is right on 1400kgs with driver and half tank of fuel.

    I took the AC out of my 225 and apart from the weight saving it also removed the drag which made it feel more responsive.

    But like Jamie said, I wouldn’t remove it even if it was just for my yearly trip to Bathurst.
