Sadly I was unable to get the vehicle re-weighed following its weight loss plan so I do not know what the new power to weight ratio is. But it is now a lot more nose heavy than before as there was a lot less that I could actually remove from the front of the car and still keep it driveable.
The rear suspension now doesn't compress at all. All movement is taken up by the shock absorbers upper mounting bushes.
It's also a lot noisier inside it now.
