Weight Reduction suggestions wanted
I did a search, didnt find anything, and after hearing Burn1ngs lies, I got to thinking.
The biggest problem we have with speed (other than a 27% loss in the tranny) is weight. So my next project will be to make a weight reduction thread with different categories. Im using this thread to take suggestions.
