How much weight did the wheels shave off?

Did you just remove the front bar to go to the track? I wouldn't recommend leaving it off.
If it is weight reduction for passes at the track, I also pull the passenger seat and the rear seat bottom (50 more lbs). The rear seat backs are 15lbs, but slightly more hassle to remove. A gallon of windshield washer fluid in the reservoir is 8lbs. All of that is another 75lbs for passes at the track.
My tailpipes are around 18 more lbs(I don't remember the exact figure off the top of my head). I recently pulled them because I love the deep rumble without the tailpipes.
That is close to another 100lbs available.

A tubular K and control arms will get you around 70lbs reduction.
Good luck in your quest for 2900!
