    it weights in at around 1200kg with me in it its was dyno'd before the extractors with 210WHP, an estimation now would be 220-230WHP

    fuel economy is for hippies, before it was modded it would manage 5.2/100 now its averages 11.2/100 ... totally worth it ! So I guess you are earning bega bucks to pay for your fuel habit so you can drive like a complete fkin moron... good for you. Most people here have matured beyond that (I think). No, i just do no see the point in hyper miling... if i want to be and "fkin moron" i take it to the track

    Yes the silicon intake tubing does actually add power, the stock tubing has a smaller diameter than the throttle body and is ribbed which creates turbulence and a bottleneck, dyno's have show that simple pipe replacement can add ~3-5hp and every HP counts :) Haha yeah I know when i used to frequent here alot everyone's build threads would say what size fans they had, how many fans and if they were intake / exhaust. The reason I listed them is they are Track compound pads as I track my car whenever I can afford to. As far as weight reduction at the moment I have only removed the rear seats and added the lightweight wheels but still that has saved ~60 kg on a ~1.1 tonne car, Id like todo some more but at the moment since its my daily driver and i like my creature comforts :) As for the rear swaybar, i have had a larger on it which on the street was heaps of fun because you would throw it into a corner and the back end would come alive but on the racetrack it was a nightmare, At the track the mini with its stock sway bars is very neutral and predictable car but when you take away rear end grip but uprating the sway bar at the same speeds it would often end in a front wheel drift ... which is fun but it scrubs a lot of speed or a spin out. The mini challenge cars actually have smaller front and rear sway bars than stock.
