Very nice wheels! The white compliments your "perrywinkle" laugh.gif quite nicely.

I don't think your bumpers are faded, doesn't the plastic just take to the paint differently? Fading looks different, I know because the top of my front bumper is beginning to do so. frown.gif frown.gif frown.gif

thanks for all the compliments. i wanted to go big with rims. and to think i was the car with the crappiest rims at meets.
did a bit of a 180

the autozone ones that are on there now lol

i have decided to switch from F Street Prepared to Street touring.
I race in 2 regions. Susquehanna and Philly. Susq has about 5 competitors and Philly has none. The competitors all have Rcomp tires and are alot lighter.
Since i am still on street tires and can afford any Rcomps at the time i thought it would be best to move down to Street Touring. There are a large amount of competitors in both regions and i think i could place in the class as well

sweet. good choice. lots of competition, but everyone is on a budget or isn't too serious, so its still fun. Co-drove my friends Integra a couple weeks ago, and placed second out of 13, beating out 4 of my friends (including my friend who owned the car).

Make sure u read the rule book over. I know off the top of my head, no 3pt strut bars, interior completely in, and the bar on the floor in the backseat might have to go (if you still have it)

DC region takes it way too seriously (which is a pain) so if they see they have something that is against the rules, they throw u in non-comp for the day.

when i was working tech, i saw a guy had a 3pt strut bar, and the tech coordinator saw it, and placed a big "NC" on his car in tape.

Unfortunetly they go by the Solo National's Rule book, and since ST is very popular, they are strict. Link to Rulebook (ST rules are on the bottom of page 1 to mid page 2)

Philly region may see it and say something about it. The last 2 events of the summer are with them
susquehanna is very laid back and wouldnt say a word.
i will keep in everything and see what philly does.

how much does your car weigh? what did you take out of the car to make it as light as possible.

im not sure yet. last time i weighed it which was about a year ago it was 2560lbs
i am hoping for 2499lbs but i highly doubt it. I think it will probably be 2520 or 30.
the back seats passenger seat spare tire is all that was taken out.
my suspension is a great deal lighter than stock. but my strut bar and sway bars weigh more than stock so that adds on a few.
i just need to weigh it lol

hmm I only know that the dry weight for a ss-III celica is 2600 pounds. wheres the thread that has the weight specs for all different models of 6gc? if there is one. Approximately how much gas did you have in your car when you got it weighed?

oh ya just saw the pics of your interior. I see that your spare tire is in there, do you auto cross with the spare tire. Since for the most part you made the rear end lighter. Did that effect handling by making the car oversteer more. Is there anything else you could do to lighten up weight, taking out insulation from the interior???

I'm surprised the car would be over 2500. I guess it's the engine?

Mine weighs 2409, spare tire, full interior, most likely no gas.

I'm gonna wager that mine was taken without gas, so consider it dry.

well st's a a great deal lighter than the gt's. because of the engine. IMO the best model you can have is a GT coupe. light and fast. i just like the hatch style better.

i drive nowadays without the spar tire and tools. i havent had much trouble at my races with the trunk being so light. i see it as being less to pull smile.gif

air conditioning is the best way to take off weight off the front. Windshield washer lines and tank weighs a bit. i havent gotten to that point yet. Air conditioning is a nono and the washer n stuff i might remove next summer.

other than that. misc. interior plastics. door panels. speakers.
but i dont plan on going that far anytime soon haha

i do plan on in the future to get a CF hatch and hood and paint them.
The hatch could be alot lighter. That glass adds so much weight to our cars
