You're kidding me right? I cant imagine that the whole Antenna Assembly weighs more than 3lbs. Why go through the trouble of changing Antenna's to save weight on the car? You could probably save more weight by not eating a few hours before driving your car.
But in the spirit of shaving weight off of a car, wouldnt it be better just to remove the Antenna altogether?
The NSX does have some auxillary antenna like material in the rear hatch, so you should be able to get *some* radio reception without the Antenna..
Don't you think the S2000 antenna will look goofy on the NSX? I mean the NSX's antenna is in a strange location. I just disconnected my antenna so it doesn't come up anymore. I was sick of the radio control car looking NSX antenna, it hasn't affected my radio reception though.

There is an antenna in the back glass. Reception is shaky at best.
To switch out for weight saving on the antenna seems ludicrous, but add that up to 100 extra things and you've just lost 100 lbs. Think it's impossible? try about three hundred lb loss without losing any comfort. Well, maybe a little more road noise - exact same noise level as the type R. I would type up a list of all the give and takes. But over the past three years, I don't think I have the time to list them all! This just gave me an Idea of a new topic.... What have other members done to save weight?!
As a S2K owner, I think the my stock antenna is ugly and doesn't pick up reception that good!
I'm actually going to get a VW Passat antenna and switch them. I know, I know, I'll look like an RC car! But I'll get better reception.
