Just wondering :)

I'm getting mine weighed on Saturday morning at a secret location (i.e work :bigthumb: shhhhh) Finally be able to check weight over the front axle, rear axle and combined weight with me in it.

I'v stripped the entire back end out so I think I may be a bit front heavy.

Any takers on what the weight will be with 1/4 tank and all fluids in :confused: I weigh 97kg if it helps lol

I wasn't at Perth, think the first and only time we met was last year down south - that travellodge place. I just remembered you being a wiry looking sort but it must have been an illusion due to your extensive height! :)

No idea on the weight but i'll take a stab in the dark at 1295kg. Is there a prize for the closest guess?

Was that the one just outside Falkirk :confused: My height does give the illusion of wiryness :dogpile:

Hadn't thought of a prize for closest guess, I better get looking......

RB25 S13, Full fuel tank. no people

So i guess for you, much more than that.
safe guess unless you spend loads on weight saving.

1993 Fiesta 1.8 16v turbo = 960kg with quarter of a tank of fuel and no driver.

Not a Skyline, but it'll explain to some of you why you can't always pass them on the road if you're having a play!

This could be interesting, book weight for mine was 1370kg.

Should be good to see if Im above it or below after all the weight reduction

OK, here is the result :)

Front Axle - 850kg
Rear Axle - 650kg

Combined - 1500kg

Now take the weight of me out + the weight of petrol.

Me - 100kg
Petrol - 20.6kg

Actual weight - 1379.4kg :bigthumb:

Running 254bhp @ last dyno means I've got 181.19bhp per ton or 169.33 bhp per ton with me + petrol :D

I believe the next course of action is carbon all over the front end :dogpile:
