Default Got my car scaled!

I am very pleased with the results!
My car now weighs 3189 without me in it so add 185lbs. for me
3374lbs!
That is a great thing considering before , my car weighed 3600lbs with me in it! I removed 226lbs of weight !

Thank's guy's. They also setup the suspension on the car also and the
anti-squat. I am not sure what all that means, but he said my % of antisquat is very good!

Its not hard to get one of these that light without making it look like a gutted race car. Mine still has power steering/brakes, stock hood, 25.5 cage, fire system, air shifter, all the interior panels, stock hood, 95% of the stock wiring and I have never cut a metal bracket off the body. He also has a glide thats 50lbs lghter then a TH400 so his weight isnt that out of line.

Almost all the safety stuff! The shop hasn't had time to convert my 6 point to a 10 point yet, so that will add a little weight!
I was very surprised though to say the least! All my panels are factory as well as the hood. I still have the stock brakes front and rear, and all the interior pieces are in place. I removed all the seat's and added 1 kirkey race seat. Everything behind the dash is gone and all the wiring is gone, except for what is needed to run the headlights ,blinkers and power windows.
I also have a manual brake master cylinder.All tubular suspension as well.
If I was to put Bogarts on the car and drag racing brakes and a pin on hood, I could get the car down to 3300lbs with me in it,I would think.

Good diets guys. Can't quiet convince myself to delete the amenities as of yet. When i do it though, I plan to go full tilt (k-members, brakes, manual rack, !hvac, lightweight carpet, kirkey seats, maybe even a glass-tek hood).
