My factory OEM wheels and tires saved about 26lbs. The factory OEM battery saved about 8-9. So my total weight reduction is about 35lbs. However, Adam has a DP with no cats so probably weighs a bit less than my stocker with 2 cats. So then it just comes down to how much fuel was in both cars and how much he weighs personally vs me.
Walk me through this battery...which is it? Any downsides?

Go fuck yourself. Every post I made in this thread until this one has been about Dragy runs. Open your eyes and maybe you’ll see it’s not me. Golfdave doesn’t even own a Dragy and probably has never even made a 1/4 mile pass before in his life. He searches my username to find my threads so he can troll them. Tell HIM to stop derailing this thread, not me.
In actual fact you are the one who is posting up misleading info supposedly to "help" others in this thread understand your fast draggy times.....

I just corrected your misleading info..therefore my post was perfectly ON TOPIC & relevant, especially when accurate facts pertaining to a cars specifications & how it goes fast are required.

You purposely & repeatedly mislead in virtually every thread regarding your cars exact specs, by misusing the English language.

You have also NOT posted any videos of your GSW despite numerous requests by other people.

Now you decide to tell a site moderator to "go fuck yourself"...….

You have been banned from various other forums, & obviously you have been trying since day one to get yourself banned from here as well.

No I do not have Draggy, as racing on the public roads is illegal (where I am) & I want my nice clean license to remain as such.."brisk" driving on twisty roads in my thing...not, drag racing.

As for your accusation that I am "trolling" you..no more than you tried to troll me by attempting to correct my how to guide on the 312mm brake swap (& showing yourself up for not reading the info at the start)

See my how to guide on retro-fitting a bigger battery...he has fitted the smallest OEM size which the tray will accept which is smaller that the factory recommend for your cars spec...
This size is usually for the most basic specifications with the smallest engines...

EDIT:-
usually the smallest is a 44Ah/22A....or 51Ah/280A capacity in VAG spec & it'll be circa 3kg lighter than the middle sized battery or 6kg lighter than the biggest sized battery that I have.....if you want light weight & Amps go for li-po....

30lbs off the nose
Braille G30C which is a 45AH (normal equivalent)……& weighs in at a whopping total of 2.5kgs....where as the smallest OEM battery (012, 012T) for the tray weighs in at 13kgs...

like I stated in my how to guide years ago..if you want the lightest go lithium..

& even better for "Armchair Racer"...they are built in Florida....

BUT they are not "OEM factory"....so he probably won't fit one....

Lol armchairs posts will now all go to an alert queue where they'll be deleted daily.
Well he actually added useful information on this thread and you haven't. The difference is that I dealt with him with civility and he has shown mutual respect. There was no reason for you to say he derailed this thread. Pretty much the most derailments have come from people coming on here to start with him

In typical troll fashion he definitely baited the hook and was waiting for people to bite just like every other thread. Then told me to go fuck myself when I warned him on it. So now, he can waste his time replying only for the posts to get deleted.
