Take out the spare wheel
I know what you’re thinking, that a spare wheel is a core safety feature of a car. For sure, spare wheels are essential if you happen to get a flat, but how often does this really happen? On average, 90% of slow punctures can be fixed for the short term with a can of tyre sealer. That’s why many car manufacturers are now including these instead of spare tyres. The cheapest way to increase the performance of your car is to reduce weight and thus increase its power to weight ratio. This will result in a faster start off the line, depending on traction. A typical 16-inch steel spare weighs 18kg with air in it, which is quite a lot whichever way you look at it.
