%75 of the weight savings you can do on your C is FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It just depends on how much creature comfort and drivability you want to sacrifice.

take your windshield out, remove your doors, remove all coolant and oil, that stuff is heavy! take the radiator and bumpers off also to remove overhanging weight.

Man, you ask a lot of questions for someone who doesn't even have a Corrado!

Your car is as light as they come !

I was just reading an article in european car from back in May 96' where one of the guys at RPI did up a 79' Rabbit with a VR6 out of an SLC. (there was also an 86' golf with a VR6 in the same article, but no weight is listed, probably closer to the Corrado weight)
The car had no back seat, light weight racing front seats (Momo's i think) and an elaborate roll bar install (but not a full cage). The car weighed in ready to roll at 1972 lbs

846 lbs lighter than the donor car !!!
So, how do you build a light corrado ? Swap the body for a Rabbit
(they re-enforced the chassis a lot, welding away on the front end before the engine went in).
I have been looking for a crashed G60 car to do a swap like this. Though a Golf is a little easier, the Rabbit is lighter and i like the body better.

Damn bro, a member for 12 days and already 200 post? Ive been on for almost a year and a half with not even 1000 post, youll have me beat by the end of the month.
If you want a Corrado sooo bad, get off Vortex and get a job!

Best way is to gut the car out throw everything away with the engine and put the car shell on a tricycle, and there you go, a man powerd corrado lighter than ever
