Miata Mass

This is what my car will look like when I finish my weight reduction plan.
I weighed the Miata a while ago.  This was before removing some stuff, but I finally got around to tallying up the numbers.  This is all with a full tank of gas.

Weight without driver:  2259 lbs.  52.2% on the front axle, 47.8% on the rear.
Weight with driver (after a big lunch): 2495 lbs.  51.0% on the front axle, 49.0% on the rear.

I'm pleased with the overall weight, but I would like to get it under 2200.
I'm especially impressed with the balance.  I didn't list that much detail, but each corner carries remarkably close to the ideal 25%.
