    Thought about sound deadner?

    k so everyone is putting it on the car i was wondering has anybody skipped that and just put it on all the panels so if you went to the drag strip you could just remove the panels and do some weight saving. Then when your done dragging just put the panels back on and reduce the noise? I understand that the floor stuff would have to stay but like the sail panels/door panels and rear panels.

    Good idea or just do it like everyone else and slap it on the car and take the extra 80 lbs to the track?

    Thanks

    I would think it would ba a major pain in the a@@ to pull the panels (and then reinstall) just to save a few pounds for the track.

    Probably better to work on your reaction time off the line.

    If you want to save weight try a spray on deadener since it's lighter than the peel and stick.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    since we're on the topic, where is the best place on an Fbody to add sound deadener? is there allready some under the seated/caret area? I know the rear deck has none, but if i do it there am i screwed if i ever have to replace the fuel pump (isn't it right there?)

    i plan to use this picture as a reference, once i start to tear into the TA...






    OP, it would be more pain that what its worth to remove/install the interior trim panels just for track purposes. in the end you arent saving that much weight, for all the effort, work and time wasted...

    If you're going to go this route, put some POR 15 on all the seams before you sound deaden. This will ensure no moisture gets into the car and under the material and starts rusting.

    here is the interior of the '95 TA that i bought. it's getting gutted, sound deadner, new carpet, racing seats, harness bar, harness belts, and then repaint the center console. just bought a hurst competition plus for it w/ the lou's short stick. have an OEM '97 Ram Air hood for it, and Eibach sportlines and Bilstein HD's...

    look how nasty this interior is. makes me sad people can treat something they own so poorly...

    there is some felt padding under the carpet in most spots. It doesnt cover the entire floor though or on the wheelwells.

    I'm thinking for now, i'll just do the floor and the rear deck/wheels. That should shut it up.
