Weight reduction

I'm looking to put my 05 on a diet. Anybody have any easy cheap ways to lighten her up some. I know somebody will say new wheels but I'm poor and can't dish out 2g's for wheels. I saw some where, where a guy bobbed his sub frame to make it lighter not sure if that's a good idea or not. Any suggestions will be great.

Start tearing her down and toss anything that doesn't look important.

+1 A lot of steel brackets/cable holders that you don't really need. The servo for the exhaust valve and all those cables. The light battery is the best savings for the money though.
