    It shouldn't weigh that much, maybe the scale was off..:shrug:

    That sounds about right, mine weighed 3453lbs.

    The hardtop stripper formulas weigh as little as 3200lbs.

    Without a full tank you aren't even talking curb weights...and my last fbody was down to 3400lbs and had 1/4 tank of gas and weight reduction when weighed (including A/C delete)... I've owned F-Bodies since 2001 (which is a massive number of years I know) but I've never seen them weigh as little as some people claim.

    we're getting our cars weighed again in a few weeks. we take it to a CERTIFIED (they are, by law, checked by an inspector) cat scale, it goes in increments of 20 lbs. so the weight of his car can be 3590-3610.

    are you guys posting from certified weight scales? my 5.0 with a great amount of weight reduction came in at 3160. (alum heads, alum d/s, a/c delete, smog pump delete, removed dog bone, removed bumper brackets, removed fog lights, fiberglass hood, o/r exhaust, removed sway bar, removed accessory brackets, alum radiator, removed heater)

    I weighed my LT1 on a certified truck scale at a grain company (who knows how accurate it was) but as you said they have to be checked by officials by law so I would guess it was dead on.

    On LS1GTO our senior members will call BS on a GTO owner if they make wild claims . . . Us well seasoned members know what to expect from our rivals.

    It's not only what I weighed my car at and countless other people, it's what they're rated to weigh from the manfuacture! I mean come on, 3600lbs+ is only a little less than what a Cobra weighs with an iron block, IRS and blower. :lol1:

    and BTW, I did weigh my WS6 with less than a 1/4 tank of gas, but weigh a GTO with a full tank of gas and it will eclipse 3800lbs++.

    I can't see an f body weighing 3600lbs. Thats crazy! My car was weighed at a chemical plant so im sure it was accurate.

    Hmmm.. I will try to get my ls1 weighed here soon... I really can't see it being that light (certainly doesn't feel like it that is for sure)....

    My raceweight with me in the car and full tank of nitrous (10 lbs bottle size) and 1/4 tank of gas is 3815. I'm 180lbs. I have lightened the car a bit but still full interior.

    You got like 150lbs worth of weight reduction right? Still that's pretty light..:coolman: I would think with a 180lb driver a stock GTO would be nearly 4,000lbs.

    Finally, the thread maybe dying since no one raced. Now we are on to talking about the car weight and it seems less people are chiming in too. We have come a long way from the race, to car weight. I recall someone in AL calling out for a Mach1 to race him, I guess no one lives near him, so to date, still no race on the books, just the usual Internet Racing. Oh well.
