Fixed the pics - really loving this lift. Modified the front radiator brackets today and ordered new wheel liners. Diff goes in next week and I bought the GT2/3 uprights so excited to get those in some time this year. New Pads and rotors as well looking forward to the track to re-learn how to drive this beast.

Car was in for corner balancing, alignment and Guards LSD install yesterday. Will have final weight either later today or tomorrow due to the storm we are getting.

Also decided to start acquiring the rest of the parts for my Gt2/3 suspension swap so i picked up adjustable rear arms, GT3 front LCA's with solid bushings and monoball ends these will all go on the uprights i got from slakker along with a 3 way remote damper setup that I haven't made final decision on yet. My 2 way JRZ's will be up for sale once I get that last piece so if anyone is interested let me know.

weighed in at 3129 w/o driver
1/2 tank of gas
RWD
Sunroof still installed and roof liner
Interior removed except for sound deadening and driver door panels
Rear wiper delete
No passenger seat
safety devices cage
straight pipes
no rear crash guard
Odyssey PC680 battery
Composite Getty Rear wing w/ 63" blade
CCW Wheels and Pirelli Slicks

I am pretty happy with the numbers. With driver and ballast I won't have to compete in the unlimited class at these weights which is good news

No stereo but full AC. Rears are 12s.
Next weight savings is roofskin.

Do you still have the spare tire? Is it the one that fits over the PCCB brakes? If so I would like to get it

I have the spare and a few people asked if it was the PCCB one and I don't believe it is. It is 16"

Thanks for the info, my car will be quite similar to yours

-half cage only
-no sunroof, oem 996tt roof
-no A/C
-Li-Ion battery
-dont know if you have these - carbon hood and lightweight front and rear bumpers(wide but light)

+ wide body kit - bumpers, side skirts, flares, etc. running 67" rear wing
+will keep rear crash guard
+meth kit
+trans cooler
+10/13" rims with 275/335 tires
+?? big brakes 997gt2rs setup 380/380mm

other than that having a basic rods+studs+gaskets engine build, trans 1-3 gt2rs, wavetrack lsd, big 4.5ICs, Ypipe+82mmTB and filters above ICs, 2x044 bosch pumps+surge tank fuel system,gtx2863 turbos, gt3 uprights, pretty much thats it

I am hoping for <1400kg (3086lb) FULL TANK... so maybe a bit less than 3000lb no gas, no driver

Last year full interior, including A/C and stereo but smaller rims/tires and brakes car weighted 1500Kg so 220lb more, will have results by mid April the latest

Back from my first weekend at the track and can't be any happier on how the car did. To say RWD transformed this car is an understatement.

Snapped some quick shots in its current state. Really ran with the yellow theme and got a lot of compliments on it in the paddock. Next up is 3 way remote coilovers and going to eventually get some type of data logger.
