I've been looking into ways to lighten My SSR, Does anybody have any Mods to accomplish this? I contacted a company in Washington state that designs and builds Frames. I've been told SSR's have heavy frames. Morrison designs and makes frames for early model cars and trucks with modern suspension componants for lowered stance, handeling etc. Its a lot of work (and money) but every pound counts (maybe diet also?) 400 HP should be enough, at least in a 3500lb car. Any Ideas? John... :cool

You could probably shave close to 1000 lbs by making it a hardtop and removing all of the top hardware, hydraulics, pump, etc. Of course you would lose one of the coolest features of the SSR.

FreddyKaye: Forget changing the frame. Not only would that be incredibly expensve, it is NOT where the weight is.

Whether it is true or not, my wife claims most of the weight in my SSR is in the Driver's Seat. :banghead I wonder what she means by that...? :glol :glol :glol

I resemble that remark and have been accused of being over gross when riding in certain vehicles. :glol :glol :glol

Now who says that the SSR doesn't have a spare tire? We're carrying it around our waist! :glol :glol

(Talk about a space saver!)
