Damn, that is interesting... fenders went from 12 LBS to only 2 LBS... cool.

I dunno, I'll just kick out my passengers and go on a diet. Likely get 250LBS out in no time!

Yeah two-tone Miatas are gay, especially the ones with gloss black engine bays...

People who do street cars like that look funny at night. Looks like they were in a crash and replaced everything with black panels.

I'm surprised how much weight can be removed from a Miata.

I love how in there quest for uber light wheels they ended up buying some heavy *** works (they do look bad ***). The 6ul is a lot lighter wheel but isn't offered in those gangsta offsets.

Last I checked Matt was selling those work wheels...

Not really. Every other door that I have used with the exception of the Elise, has been much heavier then the Miata's. Every try taking off a DSM or Mustang door? 100lbs+. Miata's are like 50.

Door's are heavy period.

The power window miata door vs manual is a ridiculous difference. I never would have guessed until I had scotts doors side by side.

right, i know, i meant as in surprisingly heavy for being a miata door, i expected them to be much lighter than they appear
as i was parting my parts car and got to the door, i almost dropped it, it took me by surprise, thats all...CF ones would be real nice, but would need door bars and a cage i guess
