How much does your car weigh?

Took mine over the weighbridge.
Came in at 1730 kg (3800lb) with me in it and 1/2 tank.
Would like to get it a bit lighter...

I might have to venture out to a weighbridge on the weekend.

Re: How much does your car weigh?

Did the "Engineers Certificate" on an XM coupe with 302/C4/Hadfield front end
and had to weigh in - 1444 kilos with a full tank of juice, me in it (80k's) and
aftermarket (XA I think discs & Centura diff and twin exhaust) mods.
Worth paying the $11 to $15 to get an accurate figure, nice to have it in
the glove box with the EPA (Noise) and engineers certificate when you get
a tap on the the shoulder by the Constabulary!!

Re: How much does your car weigh?

My old chassis was 1610kgs and I had piles of extra's in it that weren't factory.

The new chassis doesn't have :

a) castiron heads
b) tow bar
c) loads of bog
d) I somehow lost some of my sound deadening underlay

So it's a fair bit lighter.

Yet my mates XB V8 coupe weighed in @ 1450kg's.
