    What's your altered weigh?

    I'm trying to figure out what my car will end up weighing.

    It's a 150 inch Bantam.
    We will probably put a iron head bbc in it.

    if you dont have scales to weigh the car, take it to a truck stop , unload your car and drive it on the scale and pay the charge

    There is a couple of places in town I could probably do that, but I don't have a engine in it yet. I was just trying to figure out what it will weigh when done.

    Thanks guys for the responses.

    I seen one on the scales last yr. with a rat, that weighed 1630 no driver, so 1800lbs sounds realistic.

    Zip.

    Mine weighs 1,650lbs without me in it. Sbc w/alum. heads,2-spd,small rad under the front,all fluids and 3 gallons of methanol and crome moly chassis.
    If a 5 lb hammer can't fix it,it must be electrical
    Keep the shiney side up! 8)
