    I have done a few things to lower weight, one which was swapping in an Aluminum block in place of the iron one. I need to get on some scales and see where everything is now. I am probably very close to being 52/48 F/R right now though.

    58/42, total weight 1856 lb, eg civic,
    no bumper support on front and only the corners on the rear, tons of stuff removed, sound deadining, carpet, all interior plastics, airbags, rear seatbelts and all hardwear, battery installed in trunk, and lots of aluminum sus. parts swapped in for the oem ones.

    hopefully some better numbers this year with the cage and all unnessesary wiring taken out and the dash brakets and all that shit cut out, lightweight seat.

    just gp the a salvage yard and ask them to let you do it thats all i did.

    That is what I have plans for. I may end up buying my own set of scales for that.

    I removed so much weight here and there so I have no idea. But even with the front sway bar missing and the front drag springs it stills handles better than stock.

    The subframes and 8 point roll bar did stiffen it up though. I bet if I put road springs in the front and replaced the roll bar it would handle great. I also noticed a nice difference with the tubular K-member A-arms and coilovers.

    Ew, I thought it was better, but I guess it's not:
    2000 Ford Focus ZX3: 61/39.

    It's probably worse than that now with my turbo system on there. Last time I was at a scrappin yard, my car weighed 2800 with me in it. I think it's supposed to weigh 2545 stock. Maybe I should go on a diet, lol.
