Feb 21st, 04, 05:15 AM
im not sure if i should put this in the body forum or where...but does anyone have a guesstimate of how much extra weight the rally sport eqipment adds? i love the looks of the rs but im wanting to lighten my car as much as i can

Just a guess but probably not more than 25 - 30 lbs including the backup lights.

Does anyone know how much weight the convertible equipment adds?

i have 250 lbs added if it is a convertable.

Thanks, angel. Where do you get that info? I remember seeing a list of the various weights for the different options/configurations, but can't seem to find it.
If you have it, would you mind posting it? Thanks!!

i got it from the 69 camaro refence book by john hooper. its got a list off all the weigts on page 16. it actually doesnt have the weight for the convertable equipment but i just subtracted the coupe weight from the vert weight. i do not know how to post it on here. i know this book is in the hands of many members out there so maybe they can do it. i can copy it and put it in my webshots though. i just have to figure out how to scan it on there.

That's it!! Thanks guys.
PS Why would a 350 weigh 86lbs more than a 307/327??
Feb 21st, 04, 02:06 PM
al, one reason is the stroke on a 327 is 3.25 and on a 350., its 3.48.

350 cars except the LM1 got the SS hood, SS hinge springs, 12 bolt, multi-leafs and discs the LM1 got the 12bolt and multi-leafs and optional discs. My guess is the additional items added the extra weight.

I'm trying to figure out where the added 83 pounds comes from on a Z/28. Are the power disc brakes (37 lbs.) and Muncie (4 lbs.) included in that number? I guess if you added the smog system to 41 lbs. you would be getting fairly close. Anybody have a breakdown for the 83 lbs.?
Feb 21st, 04, 04:25 PM
How about the 12bolt, multi-leafs and disc's. Since it's only 3lbs less than the SS 350 or LM1 it's got to be just about the same options...
