So thought id put the vx on the weighbridge at work, with a full tank of petrol and my fat a@se (88 kg) it weighed in at 1000kg.

I understand it weighs in 10kg increments and probably hasnt been calibrated in a long time...if ever, so probably not that accurate but just a bit of fun.

Yeh I think I weighed my SC at Oulton, which came in at 930kg with half a tank and no driver and when I had it corner weighted it was 900.7kg, with no driver

Had mine weighed at HPE when I went for a geo. There are a few weight saving things but that my SC weight with most of a tank of fuel, without me.

Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black to me :)

 

My N/A is 608kg with an 80kg driver and thats only because I've added 10kg of ballast to meet minimum weight regs  ;)

These are all about in the right ball park:

 

NA - 870 - 880kg

SC - 890 - 900kg

Turbo - 920 - 930 kg

 

Wheels / exhausts / chargecoolers etc. all seem to vary weight by 10-20kg

My VXR weighs 943kg with no driver and half a tank. I guess the charge coolers water adds to the weight.

Gosh, that is quite light, must be nimble. I think with me in Nipper, it comes to 1035 Kg (with a full tank), so 120 Kg more than you - ugg!
