I hear you, but for perspective: I drive the mythically-light foxbody coupe, yet you're only running 75 lbs heavier than my combo was last year when I weighed mine, driver included. And we're both around 235. Granted I haven't done much to reduce weight, the K-member/A-arms/coilovers helped as did removing the spare (whooptie do!). I've added weight in the form of bigger brakes, wheels, tires, a rollbar, harnesses, a torque arm and PHB, and a heavier rear swaybar.
If you want a [/i]light[/i] car you can scream around the track in, you're going to have to spend a lot more money, deal with a lot less streetability, or deal with a far smaller package.
