I run the MB Weapons same as Michael. I let him give the info though because my notes are 2000 miles away and I didn't have a clue what the part numbers are. If you tell the Discount Tire guy that you're a racer and will be buying more than 1 set over the season he'll usually give you wholesale, right at $100 or so. I used to buy 2 or 3 sets at a time and just pass the savings around the group.

Awesome list, Dan! That list shows (IMO) why some of us were "sensitive" about the newly allowed combo of illegally light wheel ples spacer... That setup sits right at 18lbs (or so I understand). Now compare it to any of the "typical" wheels sitting in the 22-24lb range, plus a couple more lbs for the spacer, and it's easy to see that you could shave six to eight pounds of unsprung, rotating mass. If you guys were running 24-32lbs gross overweight, you'd be looking to drop it. And yes, Dorothy, dropping that kind of weight in rotating mass IS noticeable. Looks like it's time to get a second job to pay for new wheels...

I don't know what spacers y'all are running buy my 1/2" ones weigh about a 1/4 pound. I also have just a little over $1,000 in 2 sets of MB wheels from Discount tire that weigh 20 lbs each.

Buying a lighter weight wheel is an "option", just like deciding what tread depth to get your tires shaved to. Nobody would be complaining if someone decided to run a brand new set of 1/32nd shaved tires for every race they ran. That tire alone is 3 lbs lighter than the standard 4/32nd shaved tire. Should we make it illegal to shave a tire to 1/32nd because it clearly gives an advantage vs someone who shaved theirs to 4/32nds?
