Full titanium exhaust with stainless downpipes? How is that a full titanium exhaust?
Weight has nothing to do with the stickiness of the tire.I'd be very hesitant to change tyre brand for the saving of a few kilos. Adhesion is much more important and I personally would never change from the Michelins. They transformed my 550 when I swapped over.
Please keep us informed as your weight loss project progresses, and what you're doing to reduce lbs. Be interesting to see how many lbs you eliminate and what all you did to get there.My 575 is going on a diet.
Currently building a full titanium exhaust, with valves, and stainless equal length downpipes. I expect this to drop at least 100lbs off the car.
I pulled the inner foam out of the steering console while de-stickying it, 3lbs dropped. I never thought weight could be lost there, lol.
Next up for me is coilovers, which should drop a few pounds over the OE units. Followed with light wheels; 2 piece brake rotors (4lbs per rotor) and some Ti hardware (2.5lbs for lug bolts)
Some other areas to think of for easy weight reduction:
Headers would drop the weight of the factory manifolds/cats (possibly SAI system) and downpipes.
Brand of tire. Different tire brands and models have different weights.
Brand of battery. Like tires, different brands and models of a battery have different weight. Generally Deka is significantly lighter than other brands. A smaller battery is also an option.
