Power to weight ratio. It’s one of the most important factors taken into consideration when trying to get any type of motor vehicle to move quickly. More power + less weight = more speed, it’s that simple. Hot Rod Magazine set forth to illustrate just how this can be accomplished with an old 1985 Chevrolet Corvette and a few good laps at a local speedway. Now granted their methods are little bit extreme, but hey, what better way to show quick and dirty weight loss than with an old beat up Vette’ and a Sawzall. Little by little as weight was extracted the Corvettes lap times got faster and faster, however there is something to be said for how and where the weight is removed from the car.
