According to WHeels, the manual XR6T weighs 1710, which must be the figure HSV_KILLA was referring to. XT is 1692 kgs.

Sure if it wasn't for the fact that it is illegal to drive around with no tray. Trust me I have tried it.

Only problem I see with it is they fact theres no rear guards? Adapt something like what the Old Hotrods use and it should be fine?
