Would you like to have a Solstice with a ptw of 9 lbs per horsepower? How much would you pay for those numbers?

Hopefully when I'm done with mine I'll be hitting ~7.5 lbs/hp or less :)

What is the Power to Weight Ratio stock? I can't believe I don't know that...

No, these are custom cars people are working on (V8)

.062:1, or 16.16 lbs / hp :)
keep in mind this is curb weight and engine horsepower.

Terpfan may be quoting something different than curb weight (which implies full tank of fuel and full fluids), and rear-wheel horsepower.

Good point, but when Jerzkid asked what the stock ratio was, those were the only numbers I've ever found to go on. :)

There is another thread on this somewhere from last spring. Interesting discussion. About 16.1 lbs per HP for the Sol, 5.2 lbs per HP for my V-Rod. (both dry weights, without driver). Guess which one is faster!
