The aim is sub 1300kgs with new roll cage and 1/4 tank of fuel ready for rallying and sprinting.:D

It's on the weighbridge next week.

Fiber glass doors, carbon boot, what all are you doing to get the weight down?
Be a good sprint car after the weight loss.
Good luck with it.

Full weld in T45 cage. Pure track and rally use. Still road legal and taxed though.

std oem doors, bonnet and boot but plastic windows going back in. There are so many crash bars and strengthening struts hidden on the evo X. You can see why it weighs so much.

Great feature on the evo X doors is that the metal is thinner the further away from the hinge to save weight.

Nice work, will be fun with your weight goals:naughty: [email protected] wanted to go at mine with a hack saw but I stopped him as it will remain a daily driver.

All gone mate. I've wanted to do it since I bought it nearly 2 years ago but didn't have the heart to rip into a brand new car. About 2 more weeks until my first local event, a tarmac rally.

Great stuff Mike,

You've been threatening to do this for a while !!

500bhp and 1300kg would make an Evo X, a serious threat ;)

Did you take any pics of the actual removal work?
I only started by removing a few little panels and got a bit carried away:mhihi:

And it was mainly a power hacksaw and a spot weld drill not the Axe lol:D

I daren't show you the other pile:eek:
