No I was weighing the car, not me. I know what I weigh.

6 gallon gas, spare, jack. road car seats, no sump guard but full 2000 spec FIA cage and car 100% proper stitch welded. all glass except rear side in flexi

YB is around 88Lbs less than a Lima but 4x4 box, front diff, front cvs and driveshafts, front prop weigh something.. Those OEM Xratty seats are heavy too. Certified industrial scale

Not to bump in on Paul's thread more, but we both weighed WITH driver, since cars don't drive themselves.

At least, not yet. Still working on that iPhone app.

I don't know if you've seen this but here is some Aussie inspiration for you.

It looks good and goes very well, but oh my the sound of that 6 on launchcontrol at the start line shooting flames is awesome!

That and it seems like the rally rulebooks talk about minimum weights in terms of just car, no driver or codriver... which irritates me a bit, being a big fellow, but oh well.

Totally proportional to height... however, I'm 5'10 and 135 hahaha. But whatever, I can throw my body around how ever I want and not get easily fatigued. I'm in good shape. I'm just not bulky. I'm ok with that. Call it scrawny if you want, but there's a huge difference between muscular and conditioned. The nice area is BOTH. (which I am no longer sad smiley I've actually LOST weight since high school, hahaha)

This car is proving to be an ideal weapon in the world of SCCA RallyCross as yesterday, driven by guest driver Scott Harvey and owner Paul Eddleston it achieved first and second place in the Detroit Region Season Opener held in Crystal, Michigan.

Conditions were frigid for the morning session and competitors were presented with a frozen solid dirt surface with litlle snow coverage, even the portions of course inside the dirt ovel track. The Carrera, on it's Winterforce tires once again had an advantage in traction over the other Prepared RWD who's engines were all in the "wrong" place for such conditions. The course started out wide and open and gave some wonderful arse-out drifting opportunities but one had to reign it in for the last third as it got much tighter and slippier as it entered and traversed the oval to the finish, albeit by a circuitous route.

The afternoon session was a different story. The course was run backwards and with temperatures climbing into the 30s a sloppy goop had formed on top of frozen dirt, churned up by the AWD classes before us. Still, once we picked our way carefully through the oval track section we could open up the car, with a little care than we both used, to set some really quick times. One or two of our runs came to grief however as we both had instances of instananeuos oversteer in some of the faster sections, resulting in a few spins and multiple cone penalties between us. Still, the other competitors suffered similar fates and we came out on top again.

It was good to finally drive the car fast on the loose and I was amazed how competant it is. It just bites you in the bum surprisingly quickly if you overstep with no way of rescueing it. Lot to learn with this one. The car ran flawlessly agaiin despite the beating. Only issue was a burnt out blower motor for outside air but as the outside air was freezing we didn't miss it much. Might do next time. Easy fix?

Next event: round two on February 15th or thereabouts. Maybe some performance mods can be incorporated before then.

Here's some pictures and video links. More should surface over the next week or so.

Many people were getting caught out by the transition from grippy gravel to slippery mud-snot.

You and Scott were entertaining to watch, for sure. It looked like one of the more controlled cars out there, while also covering ground quickly.
