Fork Manitou Skareb Super
Headset Ritchey WCS

Stem Ritchey WCS 90mm
Handlebar Easton EC90
Grips Ritchey True Grips WCS (foam)
Seat post Easton EC70
Seat Selle Italia Flite SLR 135 g

Bottom Bracket Shimano XT square taper
Cranckset Race Face Next LP with TA rings
Cassette Shimano XT 11-34
Chain SRAM PC 99
Derailleur front Shimano XTR
Derailleur rear Shimano XTR
Shifters / brakelevers Shimano XTR dual control
Brakes Shimano XTR disc
Cables Gore Ride On gear cables

Wheels Front & Rear Shimano XTR hub/DT Comp spokes / Mavic X3.1 rims
Tires Front & Rear Continental Twister Protection with liquid latex

Pedals Crank Brothers Ti Eggbeaters
Chainstay Protector Piece of duct tape
Computer Sigma Sport BC1200

Tune Bracket.
Tune Cranckset with TA rings.
Sram pc 99 hollow.
And Nokon Cables

Go for the Tune saddle, maybe an FSA carbon cranks, Syntace F99 stem, Extralite headset, Triple Ti egg beater pedaler, Sram x.0 drivetrain and Formula disc brakes.

Dump that XTR stuff.... too heavy for a lightweight bike! A normal hardtail with disc should be about 9.5 kg.

That's right, no dual control. Use a lighter cassette, if possible Dura Ace 12-27 and a lighter bottom bracket (Tune etc.). Use Tune or Huegi hubs if you change to X.O or rapid fire or use huegi centerlock hubs.

USE Alien Carbon Seatpost

Have you replaced bolts with Al + Ti (load bearing) + Nylon (bottlecage)?

Otherwise have you considered losing weight off the ENGINE?
