Folding the seats down to save weight, I'll have to remember that one! [Y] [;)] Maybe if I lie across the scales in my bathroom then I'll weigh less! Now I don't have to bother with that exercise!

The rear seat thing, It is rare that I fold them down, but it has to be
said that when folded they remove a bit of weight. Vertical seats exert
more downward force because the energy is focused on a smaller surface
area. When horizontal, the weight is spread and so is less per
Centimetre squared.

My be that s why all boy racers drive with the seat horizontal with them lying down? to go faster so they will weigh less

ROFL PMSL again and again

Does it really remove it or just redistribute it... The car as a whole will still weigh the same.

EDIT: Oops, thought it was andymac saying this, should have read the link properly first. My bad.

It got me thinking, instead of having my drivers seat upright/slighty back, im going to adjust it right forward so my nose is touching the speedo, and also gel my hair forward, could shave seconds off my 0-100 time.

These are my favourites:

Reasoning for fully inflated tyres: "Like why you crawl flat across a frozen pond so as not to break the ice" - CLASSIC<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

"The car is always clean improving aerodynamic progress." - My range of Megs products gives me around +20bhp EASY, the quick detailer must give +10bhp alone!!
