Just curious what options can you add / delete from the factory on the hellcat to save weight? I'd think sunroof for sure but what else? Is leather more weight than cloth?
This is for a Challenger, the Charger is heavier right out of the gate.
HK stereo (sub, speakers, amp)
Plus package (power tilt weighs a tonne, the added material to the dash isn't free)
Driver convenience group (adds sensors and harnesses)
Technology group (adds sensors and harnesses)
Anything that isn't the base cloth interior (the ass cooling fans add weight, alcantara and leather is heavier than cloth and is added to a lot of surfaces, a heavier headliner is heavier)
A back seat (deletes the seat and belts)
Block heater (adds a heater coil and harness)
Graphics (its not free)
Hood pins (I got these because I needed them in my life)
Spoiler? (I cannot say if there is a weight savings between either)
Widebody (adds a fair bit of weight, but has offsetting performance advantages).
There used to be a light-weight package that included a non-power column, a smaller washer fluid reservoir and deleted rear floor mats.
And there is a very distinct possibility that the widebody 50th Goldschool/current Redeye wheels are lighter than the standard Devils/Warpspeed/Standard wheels. They are advertised as lighter.
I got a 2019 because that was the first year that the car came without about $8000 worth of standard features, and was therefore lighter and more to my liking. I rolled that back into the widebody and a stick. The widebody also delete the hydraulic powersteering in 2018+, and EPS standard on all models from 2019+ if I recall correctly.
Anyway, just take a huge appetite suppressant and just say no
to the options. Portion control.
