1080KG is pretty good. I was hoping the LS1 would help to break into the 1000KG mark. I'll have to have a think where I can pull some more weight out of the car. Tubular rear control arms would help, the standard cast ones are heavy.

Cheers

That is without the side pipes Mike. It has an undercar system on it at the moment. I also have not skimped on comfort for the sake of weight, not am i running lightweight anything (i.e. a lot of steel brackets etc that could be aluminised). Still, i was happy with the 3rd gear snakey i did going up the big hill on the way to the weighbridge.......;>)


I am looking forward to being legal and the Stuart highway run!!!

cheers.

Mike,

Looks like the challenge is on to be the first to get a CR under 1000kg although I must admit 1080 kg is not bad.

What do other makes weigh in at.

Regards,

Phil Neall

I got my Homebush Fibreglass down to 1002 kg with 5 litres of fuel. Lexus motors are very light. Probably get it lower once rego is approved. Lots of unecessary emmision control equipment.
Then again it hasn't had the trim done yet.

with a 300kw program in it, i think it will matter little to me how heavy it is.. 1000kg, 1100kg..1250kg full of fuel and my fat arse and it still will be darn fast.

I love cobras.

Hey there Sloth, I just sent you a pm.
Keep in touch when you think you will be on the drive up the Stuart highway, It would be good to see you and your car.
Also if you need a bed or some where to lock up the car I can help you out.

None of this paper-thin, light weight chassis for me......

My land yacht weighed in at 1170 kilos.

I think the weighbridge almost broke under the strain.... Oh well, I always planned on having it over-engineered.
