I would love to come up for a GTA meet, I used to go up TO allot before and have to make a few more trips. Would be great having you guys onboard for some runs

No plans for a lighter hood as yet. The 3rd generation M30 is about 55 lbs heavier than the M20. With the AC delete, aluminum bumper delete, it should not be too critical especially after having the car corner balanced. I may have to add weight at the back to prevent wheel slip and wheel hop on launch so this may offset the nose heavy effect as well.

M20 weighs around 260 lbs
M30 weighs around 315 so it is 55 lbs heavier than the M20
