Ok, just calculated some figures for the clio cup 172.. in relation to the normal top of the range 172.
by loosing apx 190 lbs of weight, the difference is equivelent to 8.39 horsepower at the wheels, thats it.. thats all she wrote.
so the choice is 8.39 at the wheels (.33 less time over standning quarter) or
all the toys..
for a mere 8.39 bhp differenc ein performance terms, I will keep me climate controlled air conditioning, leather, windscreen with heat reflection, sound deadening, spare wheel - yes. a real allow wheel that can be used to replace a damaged one -
