jump over to ls1 tech in the drag race section..they got a weight reduction list that gives weights..if you use lexan an get fiber glass hatch and hood,strip all the b.s out of it and re wire her,gut the doors,get tube k member,arms and race breaks..with a iron block,th350 an 9" with out cage you could be around 2550 with out you id say

3100 lbs with factory glass, power windows, most interior plastic, Iron headed sbc, and a 200lb driver. Could easily be made to 2900 lbs with lexan front and back, aluminum heads, and some lighter rear brakes.

they aint that bad...you will be shocked on how heavy some of the parts on them are..swapping to pin on hatch and lexan is worth 75#s or so..front lexan is 15# and windows is around 15#s savings also..bumpers and brackets are 40#s..air bags are like 30#s..the seats are around 100#s..swaping out the 4le60 to a glide is 60#s..sound deading shit is around 40#s..exh systen is like 75#s..<br /> <font size="1"><i>Posted via Mobile Device</i></font>
