is a lighter Lug going to make any sort of a difference? to me that sounds a little crazy - take a piss before you get in the car, that would make the car lighter

Taking a piss is a bit different than reducing unsprung weight. Reduction in unsprung weight/rotational mass makes much more of an impact for accel/decel/suspension response. It isn't a big issue for guys driving strictly street cars, but for serious track enthusiast reducing wheel, brake, and lug weight can shave lap time enough to decide who wins and who loses.

Another advantage that a stud conversion offers is a MUCH easier/faster wheel installation, especially if you are running spacers.
