On the road car weights, post yours here

What are actual real world all up weights of the different kits with car and bike engines. Nice to see difference between cars, Striker lighter than MNR spec for spec, I have no idea?

Good topic. If people are honest with data and trim this will be interesting.

Well my MAC Certificate says Axle 1 430 kg and Axle 2 450kg, Gross Weight 850 kg so can I claim the prize for the heaviest Locost. That is with 1300 x flow and 4 speed box.

Very interesting results so far. Makes me wonder how light you could make an Mx5 and how it would compare.

Also very keen to see what the Bonito ends up at with the v8 and cage etc.

No because that's the Max it can be loaded to not the actual kerbside weight. 500/500/1000 is common.

My Fury R1was 438kg at SVA. Full tank of fuel and tools/spares aboard. Ive changed a few thi gs since though so need to get it checked again. Think its probably around 550 fully loaded Inc driver in touring trim and might get down to 500 stripped out and min fuel on track.

SVA/IVA weights can be misleading though because of how they're done

Is a good topic,but how much difference is there in the scales being used?

And different types etc.

For example I weighed my R1 Mac1 on a weigh bridge which said it was 550kg,which I thought was too heavy tbh.
So weighed myself on it and it said I was 100kg,where as our digital bathroom scales say I'm 90kg.
So if it's over weighed my car by 10kg per 90kg it would bring my car weight down to circa 500kg which I would guess was not far wrong.

Book dims car with Suzuki G13b, 462kg's with 20L fuel. Full cage and two seats. Silverstone scales.

Wide book car, Black Top zetec, type 9, full cage and tank of fuel, 565Kg's.

2L Duratec, Mx5 'box, and wide car, full cage ready to race, 560kg's.

That little Suzuki engine and box looks very light against most, now I see the numbers even compared to the bec's.

Cheers,
Nev.
