Hey Paul - that's a really great data point, thanks for posting! Are you running any additional equipment that wouldn't be considered "normal" for a street build (ie track only type items such as a full vehicle halon system). IIRC you're also sporting a LS376/525 wet sump?I have a track only SLC, no tub, no interior panels, no leather or covering, minimal sound deadening, no paint, lightweight wheels and slicks, Li battery and it weighs 2560 dry- no fluids. with fluids and me in it (160#) I am at 2860.
Yep. That sounds about right. I was hoping for 2800. Now looking at 3000 lbs. happy I’m order an lt 5. The extra lbs. hope it helps a little with traction.I have a track only SLC, no tub, no interior panels, no leather or covering, minimal sound deadening, no paint, lightweight wheels and slicks, Li battery and it weighs 2560 dry- no fluids. with fluids and me in it (160#) I am at 2860.
What is the actual measured weight compared to the spreadsheet's predicted weight?My car's dry weight is 1804 lbs according to my spreadsheet of individual component weight totals . Even if I missed a few small items it still looks pretty light. Of course, I have no stereo, radio, A/C, heater, or even a cup holder. The 6.3 liter Donovan aluminum block & Dart aluminum heads help quite a bit in keeping the overall weight low.
Thanks for the shout out Mario, but candidly my name should not be used in the same sentance with Allan. I’m like an armchair quarterback, where Allan has played in the Super Bowl. I’ve had my kit for 90 days and don’t have a single bolt attached to the chassis yet, LOL! I spend more time on the forums than in the garage. But having a lot of fun. Anyway, always triple check what I tell you since I am doing this for the first time most of what I know is from reading and not doing. Always happy to talk SLC with you.Brian. Thanks for the info. If I was still going to use them I would look at there feed back. After talking with Joel. And Allan. I felt the lt5 was a better fit. For me. Again. Thanks for your input.
