Believe me, I'd love to shed a few hundred pounds but on this car it's kind of a pain in the ass. If it was 3700# it would really go fast.

Just start gutting it. It's not like you use it for anything else.

Your son will understand if you gut it.

Personally I leave the house at around 3/4 tank, so Im a hair less then that when I get to the track. This way I know I won't have to stop at the gas station on my way back. Usually the lowest it will get from there is about 1/4, on a night I really get a lot of runs in. Nothing about weight or traction for me.

I had mine down 70 mile range and still made 3 or 4 runs. But I could see how that might happen.

the 2 cars ive seen do that run 10's consistantly. i dont exacly how low on fuel they were but they pull 1.6 60' or better. thats the only thing we could think of causing that. it was like right after launch they would get a good lil sputter then take back off .
