2nd gear PUUUUULLLLLLLS all the way to 63mph

Question, do you run with your acessory belts OFF and some of those other little tricks, maybe no spare, no jakcs, no floormats, no strut bar, or sway bars makin it all so LITE...
I only runs no spare and no jacks...but I might GUT the car next time @ the track, cuz Im goin for high 14's.
Which ever way you cut it, weight reduction is not considered a perfromance part as i was asked.
I dont have to say what weight reduction does to a car, its obvious, the more you take off(unsprung mass)the faster your car will go. For me theres a limit. I will only race at the track the way i would race on the street.
I dont have a spare or jack, nor do i have a back seat, however i do have all belts, amps,speakers,carpet, bars, floormats on a stock pulley with all acc. and both front seats.Oh i almost forgot, i wear my helmet at all times too.
