Especially in a so-called track tool or Racetool, so a car that is intended for the racetrack or the quarter mile, it is very important that all comfort features that drive the weight in the air, are removed from the car. Be it insulation in the doors, the entire rear seat or the heavy series seats, which is replaced by extremely light racing bucket seats, the main thing the car is lighter and its power to weight ratio better. This can go so far as to even remove safety features such as an airbag steering wheel, and be replaced by an airbag-less sports steering wheel. Cartripping is probably the most effective way to improve the performance weight of a car without having to save on costly engine tuning, which can be thousands of dollars, especially for a sucking gasoline engine.

In some cases, there are also stripped versions of production cars, which are rather empty at the dealer to buy, such as the Abarth 695 Biposto, which dispenses with a rear seat, or the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which is even available as a monoposto, to save the maximum in weight so that you can achieve the fastest possible time on the quarter mile. The most popular are, however, lightweight versions of the 911er series from Porsche such as the 911 R or the GT2 RS, which dispense with various parts such as insulation material, rear seat, inner door handles or automatic climate control and radio to achieve the best possible performance.
Advantages of Carstripping:
- Improvement of the performance weight, and thus the performance, without engine tuning.
- very cost effective way to optimize the car.
- The fun factor is the increased race track capability many times higher.
Disadvantages of Carstripping:
- The omission of many comfort components greatly reduces the suitability for everyday use.
- The safety of the vehicle may be deteriorated.
- The resale value may be severely limited.
