    weight reduction of bumper surports?

    I'm concidering cutting off the front and rear bumper surports on the 99 TA

    ? is the front bumper surport replaced w/ alunamin or like to surport the long TA bumper?

    and how important is the stock surport if I was in a front crash?

    Thanks

    if you drive the car on the street I personally wouldn't remove the supports. The gain doesn't justify the risk. It'd be like pulling the rear brakes off for weight savings....just not worth it.

    ^ what he said....


    It is not worth it. They weigh about 45lbs collectively... and rest assured, the car WILL total if you give or get a good little love tap.
