Very good list here. Will clear up some of the confusion.

I agree, a car missing all that would be a pos... but light weight. :p

Damn, I would dread having to drive whatever pile of **** someone decided to do this to.
Well if someone did every thing on the list i could only imagine what it would be like.Unless its a All Out Drag car.More or less what 96SOHC has. In my case i have pulled 310lbs out of mine and i have some left to go but nothing crazy im keeping the A/C P/S Etc for now.

And NP Guys, glad you like it!

Thank you for the great write-up!

It'd be tough to drive without the driver's seat (J/K)!
I'm definitely thinking about ditching the driver's seat motor. What's needed to do this? Do I need a different set of tracks?

At the track I take out the passenger seat.
I have taken out the spare/jack but seem to launch more consistently with the extra weight on the rear end (I guess I suck!).

I've already taken the A/C out and replaced it with a delete-pully. I don't miss the A/C actually (I'm more of a windows down kinda person).

In addition, you've got me seriously thinking about removing the following, since they're mostly "free" mods: fog lights, rear seat/belts (costs money to replace with RSD), metal plate under steering column, dog bone (what does it do for you?), emptying out most of the wiper fluid when at the track, black boxes behind rear wheels (what are these for?), quad shocks (do they help with the launching if I already have extreme-duty LCAs?), rear spoiler (does it do any good at 104 mph?), MOTT bar (what is this???), tail pipes (replace with dumps).

You need to pick up a Manual Seat track from a car at the local junk yard or look around on the forums for a track i see them from time to time.Im actually doing this to my Daily because the seat motor is taking a poop.

You can make your on RSD for Cheap...
Dog bone don't do anything at all that i know of, Its like a sound dampener for the rear. Im not sure what the black boxes are for either, some one once told me but i forget as they have no real point in being there i took them off. They dont weight much at all tho...

With a Extreeme duty LCA you will probably be ok with ditching the Quad shocks and brackets there to eliminate wheel hop but most remove them with no issues.the MOTT Bar is a different name for DOG BONG lol... I combined my list with another guys list so i over looked that.

On a side note, i still have leather front seats, Power steering, Power brakes, A/C and bumpers. Still want to be able to daily drive the car when done and i have dropped just over 500Lbs out of this car.
