Cheer man, yeah just going to leave the spare here and hope for the best, not that far for me anyway.

I stated quick and temporary incase u read this

My cars only an SXi though, wouldnt be much of a race, ud still be spinning on the line when ive crossed the finish line

u going on the 23rd aye? get some decent runs in on the quiet! U know anyone else going?


So howd u get the rear seats and trim out, is it just clips for the trim or those gay wee torque spanner things? Guessing its just straight forward when i bother to go have a look?

you can get a torq/ hex driver with loads of bits for the price of a pint (or two...)
the rear of my car is stripped and with reduced weight the back end is a bit "skippy" over bumps etc. Wont matter for a 1/4

Some good 'uns i can think of:

*Front and rear door cards
*Passenger Seat (but only remove once there)
*Rear bench
*Spare Wheel
*Any ICE (subs, amps cables, fire extinguishers)
*Run with least amount of petrol possible (but bring full can as well - a secure one)
*Headlights (only take 2 mins and will improve air flow!)
*Rear shelf
*Bonnet (alot of wieght and relatively easy to remove)
*Any toolboxes or other stuff layin in boot.

Wudnt bother with Carpet and plastic as these takes ages to get out and wiegh nowt.

Matt
