    Performance Mods? You mean weight reduction?

    Thursday I will start my 2016 Charger Scat Pack weight reduction "mod" as it is now my track and Mexico car.

    The goal is to drop 400lbs but still have all the daily driver benefits including:
    AC
    Power steering
    Seats
    Center Console
    Door Panels

    Get a set of Braums and save even more. Then a lithium battery can shed another 40lbs or so .... a good drag pack set up can save you 50+ lbs as well. Front and rear wilwoods are good for some pretty savings also , then you can save even more weight on wheels.

    There’s a nice Braille battery in the for sale section right now for a good price. I would buy but I already have a lithium. Easy way to shed weight and still use for street driving.

    Oh yeah this battery in my future as well: Cox Performance Inc. | Cox Performance Inc.

    The 15” rear conversion only saved me 6 pounds on each side versus my stock RT brakes but obviously brembos weigh more. You could just go down to RT brakes and save a ton of money and weight.

    Also forgot the washer fluid reservoir and lines are about 10 pounds EMPTY.

    The goal is to shed the weight without spending any money.

    I got to 11.6 with a full interior. I found the most weight saved was in the wheels. Racestar DragStar 92 all the way around, very light wheels. Skinnes in front, fatties in the rear. I'm looking forward to your numbers once you do the full reduction.


    Bone Stock motor w/ Hoosier bias-ply up front and MT ET Street R in the rear: ET: 11.612, MPH: 119.52, 60': 1.634, R/T: .000
    Not Stock: Who knows...

    Update:
    4220lbs was the final weight for today. We removed the rear seats and took some minor stuff out of the back.
    4270lbs with rear seats put back in.
