Lowest weight achieved on a s13 race car

What's the Lowest weight Anyone achieved on a s13 race car? Not stock cars or daily drivers that only have gutted back interiors.

s13

Wicked BURN!!!! I understand though. Try to think about how light the S13 is already.........the understand or know that you still want a certain amount of curb weight to be able to have a balanced car... to light and you will not be able to control the car at high speeds to heavy and you will not be as nimble at lower speeds, but will have better control at higher speeds. For instance my friend just bought a track edition NISMO 350Z and hates that it is so much heavier than the S13 he previously owned but loves the solid feel of the car at high speeds .....lets says above 100mph. It is a relevant ? though. I think you need to be more specific about the ? Try
asking what the lightest most succesful S13 (drift or grip) has been. I honestly dont know but would be interested to see who it was. Good luck and hope that I didn't offend you!!

I'm guessing that he is looking into making a track or full race car out of a s13.

u need to go search mang! look for s13's that have been built only for race and see the discription of the car. it will tell u what the weight of the car is and how it was achieved.

So maybe he wants to know for somthing other then drift. There is nothing wrong with this thread, ya you can google, but do you think everyones set up is on google. Im interested in hearing some examples of how low they got the weight down to, and what they did. So dont be an asshole

Jesus... so much hate...

This thread is A LOT more related to cars than half of the other threads out there that have to do with trends and all other sorts of bs

from a little bit of searching I found the DSG car is 1926 lbs dry, approx 2100 lbs wet

but that is a hatch and you are looking for a coupe

There have been weight threads before. This is not a new idea. I daily'd my coupe at sub-2300lbs.

Curb weight has nothing to do with stability. Do not derp the noobs.

However, my car won't pass tech for anything other than driver's ed. No cage, etc.

Jeeeesus!

SEARCH!!

Start with the GT class cars that run built KA engines.
The real 240sx drivers.
those guys are in a whole nother world, and wouldnt even bother bringing themselves over here.



"Collin Jackson and Dave Humphrey will be racing their BM&M Nissan 240sx cars in the Grand Touring 3 (GT3) category. These are purpose built, tube frame, racecars with Nissan 240sx fiber glass bodies. The cars have 2.4L, 4 cylinder engines that produce 275 HP"

^^ those aren't even 240's anymore, those are full tube-chassis cars, so it kinda doesn't count.

I think he's curious about how light an S13 coupe can be while still retaining at least most of the factory unibody.

Depends what regulations you are under.

According to the 2009 SuperGT regulations, vehicles must maintain a minimum weight of no less than 1,100kg (2425lbs). SuperGT regs require the original production chassis between the wheel centers be unmodified.

If no limit, then I'd imagine you can make the chassis weight as light as.... 1400lbs? (Just a guess) But, I'm talking Ti + C everything.

here just for a reference since not a lot of info is on this thread so far

89 coupe with s13 sr. Everything gutted except dash,cluster, and stock front two seats.
FMIC, all stock metal panels, no sunroof at all (open whole in the roof), no headlights, just the stock metal covers.. also note I have motorized windows and mirrors

2200lbs low on gas (seem lows to me, but I was on a certified truck scale with 20lb resolution so who knows... not an expert on the subject, just a little suprised to see that low.)

I have since added a six point cage and a little bit of carpet for creature comfort (can't stand bare metal floors) so hopefully soon I can get it back on the scale just to see what it's at now.)

Not sure about s13's but I know Kognition has one of the lightest s14 that is a race car but not as extreme as the examples above with tube frames and missing rear ends.

How are those not 240's?
Shit, they run KA engines.

You understand that the majority of Pro level drift vehicles are tube framed to certain extents.

Where do you want to draw the line then?

And If you SERACHED, you would have found numerous weight reduction threads.
But you opened a new one.

there is one very popular weirdest thing thread that is numerous pages and post long.
There is one How Low is your daily thread with numerous pages.
If someone opened a new "weirdest" or "how low" thread, they would be locked right away.

you see what we are saying?
you should have used this

Seriously dude? get off your high horse.

This guy wants to know how heavy a super gutted s13 coupe that the average person would be building on here would weigh.

He doesnt want to know about some unlimited budget shop built tube frame single piece fiberglass body car that isnt even street legal and doesn't have a nissan chassis or body panels.

and of course those guys arent on here, they are race car drivers. not car builders and not 240 enthusiasts.

and no, there has never been a thread quite like this and he doesnt want to look at a thread that says the sound deadening weighs 20.6 pounds and the ac compressor bracket weighs 4.7 pounds.

stop trying to choke off half the threads you look at to tell someone to search. I dont know if you want to stroke your ego or what, but this guy isnt asking what parts to use for a 5 lug swap. This is a pretty unique question



Honorable mention to these guys for not being assholes and trying to actually help the OP: (I know, Crazy concept for you to understand)

You're a Moron. Look at his question.

Average people just don't build race cars everyday.

yeah, you really are being a tool.

Because if the dude wants to know the lightest S13 shell, we have about 1000 of those threads, going into such specifics on how to rewire your car and loose 40lbs of wire weight and anything else.

ITS ALL THERE, he does need to search.
Are you really going to try and say this is a unique question??

guy asked the lightest 240, we replied to an extremely vague question. next time we will mind read through the internet though.
