Replace that with a 4x4 and you got a lightweight solution. Or just go gangster like my IS300 and remove the crash supports. You'd be surprised the weight reduction!

Rofl wow i totally missed that. Thats impressive. I always cheated and used my g/f's SUV :( Maybe he's using it to stabilize the car at high speeds that the saab 93's are known for.
