  1. new additional hood quickrelease. now the light GFK hood will hold better at high speeds
  2. I didn't try to order with 5x98 the rims are standard expensive enough. in this size you just get 5x130 (Porsche). Because of the widebody I need anyway 0 offset at the wheels so I had to order adapterplates from 5x98 to 5x130.
  3. this is because my gtv is very wide on the back (since I have widened it 12cm on the rear and around 10cm on the front. Its not just about build the the lightest gtv, it is allways a compromis between aerodynamics, price and performance. If I just wanted to build the lightest gtv I shouldn't have 330er brakes, no 24v v6, no cage, and so on. 235er tires are on the rims for now (bought them occ.) with new tires I will look again what fits best. tyi I won't let it on standard power, and I will let the option open to change to rear engine rwd (if its possible to get this road legal) this is why I install the widest possible rims on it
  4. I have finally mounted my OZ Wheels they are looking great, but with the pirelli p-Zero are really haevy, this makes the weight difference unfortunatelly less than expected. but I will change the tires to toyo to have less weight. Weights: OZ Alleggerita: Rear 11x18 - 9.55Kg ( with tire (Pirelli P Zero 295/30) 24Kg) Front 9x18 - 8.25Kg ( with tire (Pirelli P Zero 235/40) 19.3Kg) Keskin KT1 ( rims before (they where bought when just style and size mattered )) Rear 10x18 - 16.4Kg ( with tire (Yokohama Semi 295/30) 29,4KG) Front 8.5x18 - 14Kg ( with tire (Hankook (street tire) 225/40) 24.3Kg) Weight original 7x17 Rims 11.3Kg + 10 Tire =21.3Kg Does anyone know light tires? btw. also my lexan windows from plastics4performance are arived. I will install them the next days.
  5. I added these for styling and for "theoretical improvements" to messure it I would need to test the VMax again on the german highway, but i I need to do others first until I go to test again. I installed a Laptimer on my tablet on the dash. with this I can messure improvements in 0-100 and 100-200km/h speeds as well as vmax. But I did also some real improvements lately. I added some heat reflective foil to some important places as f.E. the MAF Then I finally mounted the blue silicon hoses and painted the original plenum black ( carbon plenum can just be mounted with getting it expensive tested to drive it on the street) but I test fitted and weighted it. the Carbon plenum with f430 TB is around 2kg lighter than the original one
  6. Hi all, I have this part in my GTV which is unnessesary now. Is anyone interestet? If it helps someone its free, you just need to pay shippment costs. PartNr. 60663718
  7. Good to know that there is still an easy way to save weight but for the next time I use this battery, not that I bought it for nothing ^^' I'm doing some detail work at the moment, I bought a complete powerflex set, from which I recently fitted the easiest one on top of the engine. really good quality I also got some vortex generators on the roof, and new airflow improvements at the front (picture follow later) The startbutton is also finally placed.
  8. I know iridium batterys, but 1kg? maybe you have a 4 cilinder car?. The lightest batterys I know are these: https://www.liteblox.de/ But they are expensive as hell, specially because I would need the middle one of theyr set for a V6 Edit: Ah sorry you said mr2, all clear. For a V6 more ampere is needed to start It thats why I can't take the smallest. but 5kg are less enought for the moment
  9. Nice do you use Fiat gearbox? and driveshaft? How is the drivabillity?
  10. to be honest I share your thought about that strut in the trunk, but when I had mounted it I shaked it hard to see if it does anyting, you could feel that its very stiff now. I think they didn't do it just for fun but in my special case is this also for the future, I want to cut out the trunk mould and the fuel tank cover and replace the fuel tank with a alloy one. But for now I don't know anything about fuel tanks and fuel pumps. Whats needed and what has to be done to do it properly. Thats why I wait and maybe try it on one of my other cars first I know that undertray from Orque yes. But because it fits also to the original bumper I would need to modify also this one. Thats why I take the one I have. But I'm gaining a lot of experiences with carbon during the last year. Maybe when I have modified the airflows from that one I have, I can build one in carbon, or even carbon kevlar
  11. I saw the strut on the picture and made a carbon fiber copy I actually a strut for a porsche which I had laying around. you can buy them on ebay and just need to enlarge the holes. Its a very strong strut Now I ordered the middle lower bar from Ultraracing and with the engine mount from powerflex I have a complete powerflex set (just need to install it :S)
  12. no It is an OEM one, I bought this years ago, but couldnt fit it because of my front bumper btw. I'm building a replica of the Ultraracing strut from inside the trunk. But carbon instead of steel Pictures will follow.
  13. Good news yesterday I modified the lower 4point strut form Ultraracing and made it fit with equallength frontpipes. The good thing is, the strut is now also a protection for the exhaust and also finally I have mounted the undertray.
  14. its absolute brilliant to drive. You can feel the a big difference to the original very well. 310kg less on very wide tires makes a lot of grip in corners. Specially while cornering and braking you feel also the stiffnes of the chassis. (Roll cage is also welded to the dom) In the seats with this harnesses you feel almost nothing, no hard corners, no braking, but also less accelerating (because it has no padding ^^' ) But what I also feel is the weight of the keskin Rims which are still on. but the creating of the adapter plates for new ones shouldn'n take so long anymore I hope. While "driving" to the top of the Stelvio I could show whats in it. the 400ps BMW (next to mine on the picture) with div and Rwd had no chance. I had to brake earlier and harder than I would without it in front. Also while accelerating out of the corner he didnt get away from me, I had to lift my foot a lot of times. There you feel the 300kg weight differences between this two cars. But of course the 250 Hp which mine should have around are also going to be improved . The only bad thing at the moment is that its brutally hot in the car because I can not open the windows anymore ^^' but the lexan window kit with sliders is ordered. Yesterday I modified my Ultraracing lower 4 Point strut to make it fit with the equallength frontpipes. this and the Powerflex brushes i ordered will make a lot of fun next time With this modified strut I can finally fit the plate to cover the engine from under the car I hope I will achive a better VMax like this
  15. Some news. Massive weightsaving with a new Odissey Extreme Racing battery. Now just 5.4kg the allready smaller one before was 15kg and the original should be around 25-30 I think. If you want to drive sporty you have to change this easy and cheap weightsaving. It actually saves you more weight than the rear seats Hint the price was around 100£ you can get them from f.E. demon-tweeks.co.uk Important if you change to a smaller battery is not just the load, but also the impulse ampere power! My small battery has around 640A impulse power to start my v6. And also new is my tablet for laptimer and navi
