Does anyone know who makes the best fit/quality lightweight top for track car?

Thanks

Down here, a lot of guys buy from this guy. Kent 214-679-6346. Think they sell for $450 but shipping up there will probably double the price

Are those OEM style hard tops? The OEM is pretty light even with all the headliner and plastic and glass. Lighter than the soft top which I perm removed from my car due to a busted back window.

I'm not sure how much lighter they are. Every pound counts for a race car though. I'm amazed at what some of these guys do to loose just a few ounces. Kent's tops are for racing only. You have to bolt on a plastic window and I believe bolt it down to the car too.

Oh I know, used to race. Had myself a Lil track Civic, high compression stock block single cam so won't be put in higher class, built suspension, gutted interior. Plastic windows. Every test lap is a suspension adjustment. Used to be fun but my state has made it hard to race legally
