There will be plenty of weight coming out of the car. Current JStock weight is 2733 lbs w/o driver. M3T at 2550 lbs *including* driver and equipment. In 2011 Stock will be the same as current Prepared (2624 lbs) … I just hope it also includes driver and equipment. That would be a fairly significant drop in weight with the US average for a male tipping the scales around 190 lbs. So everyone gets to drop 300 lbs from the car.
For The Red Car it means the Turner JStock spring/damper combo needs to be replaced. Every double-adjustable setup in contention requires strut modification, so pulling the struts first and shipping them off seemed like the logical thing to do. My buddy Hugh came over to lend a hand and we had everything out in no time (only one trip to Sears required) These will get boxed and shipped out before Thanksgiving.
