whats the ideal weight you want your willy/16v?

as mines currently at 860KG, and still have to invest in persex windows and light weight wheels/bucket seats.

Anything less than 800kg would be nice for me... I've weighed everything I've taken out and if they started on 980 kg, as claimed, then I am down to 806 kg at the moment and still have a few more kilos I can shave off. Once complete I'll stick it on a weighbridge and see what it really weighs!

tbh i dont have a clue, theres no interior except the dash left, but i also have a cage so add 30kg back on, still need to get perspex windows and few other bits but im not that fussed if its not below 900kg

any where between 900kg/1000kg and 300 to 400 bhp would be lovely

i got mine down to 810kg without to much striping did help that my engine was slightly lighter though :lol: think really there isnt an optimum overall weight as that would all depend on what power your running. you really want to be looking more at the weight distribution :wink:
