Has anyone weighed their GXP Coupe? I weighed mine about 2 years ago on certified (+- 0.1%) truck scales with myself and a full tank of gasoline. The weight was exactly 3100 pounds. I thought curb weight was a wet (oil, gas, etc) measurement with no driver. Remove my 180 pound bottom and it's knocking on 2900. The lowest documented curb weight I can find is from the April 2009 issue of Motor Trend Magazine at 3054 pounds. Did the factory leave something off of my coupe?
That is interesting, because without you it should be around 3018. Now I'm going to have to find a truck scale. You are GXP, so the coupes are said to be 3018, however there seems to be a difference in weight between a vert GXP and an NA....the GXP being heavier I believe due to the turbo, IC, added piping, and some of the suspension upgrades.
Edit: interesting though, I always thought curb weight was no one in the vehicle but this states (wikpedia): Curb weight (US English) or kerb weight (UK English) is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables (e.g., motor oil and coolant), a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.
"Passengers" is the key. A driver is not considered a passenger by definition. And if you look further at the wiki definition it says the EU often includes 75kg (165lbs) for an average driver weight.
When I set up the suspension and corner weighted my coupe it weighed 3025 lbs. Only mods that would add weight was a Probeam and Backbone, and the slightly heavier ZOK sway bars.
yea but that probeam is pretty thin metal, that whole assembly won't weigh much, same with the backbone since that's aluminum. Are the zok sways hollow?
