I am wondering how many of you have taken out the spare tire from your trunk? I wonder by taking out the spare tire would it yield some quickness at the take off? What do you guys think? a silly question but fun to find out:tongue:

I dont get the whole "I have AAA so its gone" deal.

What if you're 5 miles from your house or the dealer and you get a flat? I guess you'd have to call AAA and wait an hour and yadda yadda yadda instead of just changing it and driving it there.

I dunno....


Anyway, taking out the spare tire will help a little bit for taking off, but not much. Its said that a 100lb loss will lead to a loss of a 1/10th of a second in the 1/4 mile.

Yeah, I'd never run around with no spare, unless I was already at the track. If you're that concerned about weight, you could get on the treadmill and lose 10-15 lbs (j/k) :)

I took mine out on my old car, my 96 328i, mostly for room for my crossovers, but it wouldn't have mattered because I could never have put that mini on with my rims :p
