what are all the things you can do to make the supra lighter without removing the a/c, heater core, or door panels.
yeah in the front at least. my back windows are tinted a little. stock meaning that you cant tell that i removed things like the speakers and wires and airbags. shit like that. how do your roadsters look? got a pic?theman said:Well the Torinos are heavy ass seats and don't save anything over stock for weight. I used the SPARCO Roadsters in mine. Unless you have a big ass they're more comfortable than the Torinos and weigh in at 15#s, so you save another 50#s under the Torinos right there with two seats. Plus they're $100 cheaper per seat. That alone would more than make up for the weight of a chromoly rollbar setup. In cromo a six point w/ swingouts should come in to around that or a little less... Anyone out there with exact figures on that?
Also there are the CF Recarros at about 5-7#s, little more pricey though...
So let me get this straight, you expect to have the stock look with what you've already removed?
hey my ass dont look fat!! im only 135 lbs. haha. i just installed new brakes today and i had to cut off the old rotor guards. the metal things on the back side of the rotor. in the rear i found about a 20 lbs weight loss but am still skeptical about doing it. what do you think about removing one parking brake assemly and cable? i dont think you need two. thats a lost of weight not needed. what do you think?theman said:I love the Roadsters, but sorry I still need to take pics. The top sections of the seats look the same as the Torinos, but the actual curve of the wide section at the top where your shoulders rest is formed much better. The Torinos seemed to curl my shoulders forward where the roadsters kept them back in a more natural position.
The seats are non-adjustable for tilt, but with the sparco brackets I set the angle and it's been perfect for me ever since. When anyones else sits in them they're at just the right position with just sliding the seat forward or back.
The only down side is guys with a 36" waste or larger probably have trouble with the narrow bottom ends. I have a 34" waste and my ass fits just right in the seat, but I've seen guys larger than me aren't comfy...
So if you have a wide ass you may wanna keep the Torinos.
