No, but the wood ain't heavy, you would love the wood interior. The real weight
difference is negligible. Order the deluxe, comparably equipped minus a couple of options.
Another point... Generally speaking, weight
affects acceleration, while aerodynamics affects cruising.
Learn to accelerate at a rate commensurate with your load.
Find the cruising speed with the best drag compromise.
If the only difference is a couple hundred pounds of weight
with the same drag you will lose nothing except a few seconds from zero to sixty.
