Turbo blade engine, fury tub on locost chassis weighs 590kg wet with me in it, I weigh just under 14stone these days which puts it almost dead on 500kg

Not sure where all the weight has come from

200bhp so 500bhp/ton

My Sylva J15 came in at 500kgs on the IVA scales......that's with a 1.7 puma engine, and me being very careful with weight. We won't talk about the driver as power to weight goes from something comparable to a GT3 RS down to a corsa diesel!.

Haynes Roadster BMW 6cyl M52B28 - 632kg 'wet'.

Quite pleased with that considering the size of the engine. Got 51/49% Front/rear bias and only 0.5% side-side imbalance before touching the spring platforms.

Only done using some cheap 200kg scales but it's given me an idea.
