Is the title weight of the mn-12 calculated without fluids?
Fuel, oil, atf, antifreeze, etc......

Last time I weighed mine, it came in around 3780ish with me in it. I weigh around 195.

Mine is around 3700# with me in it at street trim without spare and jack.

Race trim with the skinnies and Slicks and me in it right at 3630#. I'm about 165# myself.

You'll find most LX's will range between 3750-3900# in stock street trim dependant on options & driver weight..

SC's cars are usually a bit heavier.

mine with me out of it, and a decent system weighed in right at 3,940 lbs.
now, with driver, I'm hoping to be right around 2800-2900 race weight.

Mine was 3600 last time at the track. That's with me out of it. Think I had a half a tank of gas.

That's insane!.. :eek:

You took Lotus's motto to a whole other level "Performance through light weight"...

At that weight you're not going to need very much HP to see some good numbers in the 1/4 mile..

Before the splitport work (which included addt'l weight to reinforce the hood for the DIY cowl), w/o driver but race ready, our car was at 3000LBs exactly.
I've moved the battery towards the centerline so this will help distribution as well.

My 95 Cougar weighed the same thing with all accessories, street trim, etc and full tank of fuel with me in it.

Thats what I'm hoping.
We'll see how long the rear lasts.
