Removing back seats

413 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ig_88e
Hey, I know people on here have taken their back seats out. I want to lose as much weight as possible for a rally-x this weekend. How big of a deal is it? Will it be easy to put them back in? What do I need for tools? Thanks a lot.

for the trouble, its not worth all that work to shave 20-25 lbs. in a 1/4 mile drag, its a good estimate to say for every 100 lbs you remove, you will reduce your time by .010 second. in your case, youre rally X or Auto X, youd probably want the little bit of extra weight in the rear to even out the weight distribution (especially in a golf/gti)
