    More without them. Like 80% of them have sunroofs. Real race cars do not, they weigh a lot less.


    Edit:
    Finally I got an avatar. Do you like?

    Thats true, not only do they weigh less, but they are a stiffer chassis too. But I love my sunroof.

    I think this is the greatest idea ever!!!! You should be able to get down to "honduh" weight with those weight saving ideas! Great job Matt, keep up the work! :D

    Alright guys, so I picked up my project 1g awd laser for $500 runs and drives, kid didn't no what he had. So needles to say if all goes wrong I scrap the shell and keep the motor and the rest and still come out ahead. Now that's outta the way here is the problem and im looking for suggestions.

    Well anyways im planning on doing a targa top however on a 1g the doors have the window seems, where a 2g door and window is seemless. How would I go about getting this to fit properly? Just weld an extra inch or so extra on the sides from where the window would originally line up?
