Re: rear seat removal?

Yeah...not rocket science.

Theres a few bolts (I think 6 at most) that hold both the base and the back in.

Its minimal weight, so it wont make a huge difference unless yure on a dragstrip!! Not worth the effort unless its getting a rollcage!!

Re: rear seat removal?

thanks for the advice, does it really unbalance the car that much?

Re: rear seat removal?

Taking the seat out actually increases the movement of the shell under cornering. Put a brace in if you decide to take the seats out and/or adjust the tyre pressures to compensate.

Cheers

Re: rear seat removal?

i removed the rear seat install and it made absolutely do difference on take off or power at all, but made the back end uneasy round corners so i put it back in that night.

Re: rear seat removal?

I took mine out 4a few weeks while I was cleaning them. No differance of handling or speed. Yes it wud make it quicker, but it will not be noticable unless if you run 1/4miles and then it may be like around 0.07 of a second quicker.
