His car has 18 inch wheels along with a full tank of gas. The weight makes sense IMO. Hell mine is 3650 lbs with a full tank, full nitrous, and maybe 20 lbs of stuff in the trunk. Damn iron block lol

Mine might get to 3150 with a full tank on my 18s and sway bars. But my 18s are lighter than my 17s

idk.....might only only get to 3100. I'll weigh it again here soon.

True but 3700 lbs seems a little heavy even for a WS6. My a4 Formula with heavy 18s and a ws6 hood weighed 3500, I got it down to around 3360 with a little weight reduction.

It was 3560 with a full tank and 18" chrome wheels with 305/35/18 tires. Lucky my swaybar was out or I would have been around 3590 lol. It seemed about right for an auto ws6. I have thought about weight reduction, but it seems so damn expensive to do a-arms and k members.

There's lots of weight reduction to be had on these cars before you ever buy anything like that. One of the biggest things you have to watch is not adding weight with mods.

Now that you mention mods adding weight i can think of a few things.. my sway bars, strut tower brace, torque arm, and subframe connectors definitely add weight. Even my flex plate was much heavier than stock lol. I still have full AC as well, which I plan to keep as long as possible. Funny how it all adds up though

I'd be curious to know how much of a difference lighter wheels would make

A good drag pak. significant enough to **** you up with your shift timing.

Since goin to a bias(which i haven't ran on yet) the wheel/tire weight dropped almost 30lb using the same wheel. My rear wheel/tire weighs 29lb. Fronts are like 22.

i still have ac also Rollin, full stereo, cruise, rear seats, all the sound deadening, oe carpet. There's even bumper supports on the car. Rear is oe lightened front is burkhart. Has jack/spare in it to.
