should there be a rennslist 60 day challenge to lose more weight than the WP saves? Bonus to lose the weight of MG wheels!

I found a car with WP just bc I liked the look and thought be something “different “

Weissach Package weight savings are 18kg compared to GT2/GT3 RS with Clubsport package: The savings approx:
Titanium cage 12kg
CF suspension parts 5.3kg
Roof 0.5kg
CF paddles 0.225kg
Lighter carpet 0.225kg

Additionally, 11kg can be saved with the Magnesium wheels bringing the weight loss to approx 29 kg.

But in the USA you cannot get the titanium cage with WP, so the weight savings are just some 6kg without the wheels, so the standard GT3 RS with PCCB is actually lighter than a GT3 RS WP with steel brakes there. The PCCB weight difference is somewhere around 15kg (let's say in the range of 12kg-17kg AFAIK) and it's unsprung mass. Too bad the ceramics are potentially expensive in heavy track use.
