    Motorsport Dilemma

    So my Twingo is sat in a shed and hasn't realy moved for years. I was building the car to continue rallying after I had sold my Puma but after 4 years I have fallen out of love with rallying due to the realisation that I won't be able to rally again because of the financial side of going stage...

    Weight Reduction.

    Where can you lose weight from the front end? Car is a Twingo 133 so not a clio but similar. Bonnet is all ready mostly done and it's a cup so no aircon and also has electric ps. Needs to remain road legal as its a rally car. Not looked but is there anything behind the bumpers that's not needed?
