I just weighed a federal 595rsr 225/45 17, with about 3mm left on it and it was 11.3kg.Snowbeard said:i think that wheel weight should be lbs mate, there's no way a 17in oem wheel and tyre weighs 19.5kg!
19.5lbs is 8.8kg which would be about right.

Yeah you can't beat some AC on a hot track day :xaiweb5:big-pete said:with AC
how about carbon? not cheap but if you wanted to keep looking OEM Seibon do alot of lovely carbon at completely reasonable prices(Â£2600ish for doors) that will save some weight.
RE Battery- Liteblox are some of the best batterys ive ever seen, especially at the retarded weights- 1.3KG for the lightest one!! again really reasonable on price- 700quid, but thats an 8Kg saving xrofl
bar all this- fill the tyres with helium to save some weight, and run it on half a tank of fuel.
Pretty sure my a/c switches off in vtec lol.spooke said:Yeah you can't beat some AC on a hot track day :xaiweb5:
I wonder how much weight is saved with Carbon doors, a bonnet isn't much lighter but with plastic windows you'd probably save a fair bit.
poly windows are sick, BUT its not just the window that goes its all the mechanism etc that goes, so all the motor etc ergo extra saving.Fez said:Pretty sure my a/c switches off in vtec lol.
I'll be keeping my a/c as it is good on road trips, but unfortunatly its one of the heaviest single items you can remove, and from the front.
Im not sure on oem window weights but from what i've read on polycarb windows they are usually half the weight of oem. So side windows wont be huge difference, but rear window would be a good chunk i'd imagine.
Forgot about the motors too lol. I weighed my ek ones before and they were 1.9kgs each. But i guess if you were getting polycarb you'd have full cage so the doors would be gutted also.big-pete said:poly windows are sick, BUT its not just the window that goes its all the mechanism etc that goes, so all the motor etc ergo extra saving.
as to doors- there pretty weighty by teg standards- the inner skin is fairly thick to save weight in the cross brace department. so get some carbon ones, with poly windows for max weight saving.
but as above- get rid of AC its less rotating mass and it weighs a fair bit.
How do you find the Odyssey PC680? Reliable? Enough power to crank it even on cold mornings?Mudgey said:Going back to the battery for a moment, my Odyssey PC680 battery weighs in at 5.5kg for the DC5, and I expect the new billet tray weighs as much as the old steel unit.
That's approx. 4.5kg of savings to be had.
I've got all my AC stuff apart from the evap core out. I can weigh everything to give some definite weights.
My tc105n and AD08r come in at a fraction over 17kg per corner.ollieh17 said:8.8KG for a wheel and tyre is seriously light. A light weight 15" wheel and tyre would struggle to match that
That would be great if you could. I'm very tempted to pull mine out as its the single heaviest item left probably, along with passenger seat.Mudgey said:I've got all my AC stuff apart from the evap core out. I can weigh everything to give some definite weights.
I haven't tried it yet, saying that I had an even smaller battery on my Supercharged K20 Prelude, and that did struggle a little bit on cold mornings. This battery being bigger, and with greater CCA's should be better.cameron1589 said:How do you find the Odyssey PC680? Reliable? Enough power to crank it even on cold mornings?
Yea, will do when I'm back in work. Let me know if you do take it out as I've made a billet air con blank for the firewall, its made from 6mm thick aluminium with an O-Ring so when bolted up it is fully sealed. I can supply them in anodised black or bare aluminium so you can paint it body colour.Fez said:That would be great if you could.

I'll weigh them next time i get a chance ðŸ‘ðŸ»cam87 said:what about the standard exhaust back box and b pipe? These always weight quite a bit, would be interesting to see the difference between oem and the spoon catback as the back box is only 3.5kg on them
