Nitron Build - Saving Unsprung Weight

We're almost finished with the installation of Nitron's tasty new bits on Michael's Cup car. After weighing both the stock parts and the new Nitron bits we found that there are significant weight savings to be had with Nitron's uprights. Over 10 lbs of unsprung weight were shed with the full set of four uprights.

OE Front Uprights (pair)=24.4 lbs vs. Nitron=17.3 lbs
OE Rear Uprights (pair)=23.8 lbs vs. Nitron=20.1 lbs

We'll publish more weight saving details later!
