SO I weighed my car tonight.....

it's a ROLLING CHASSIS......

No engine

no tranny

no driveshaft

no diff and axels

no caliper or brake booter and lines

no seats

no dash

no wiring

no gauges

no fire system

no fuel cell & pump

it's as basic of a rolling chassis you can get!

Good guesses,

Considering my extensive roll cage(see my build blog) I was really surprised.

1185 lbs.

Don't pay attention to the cross weights as there is alot missing and i didn't level the scales.....I just wanted to know total weight.

I also weighted the diff 57lbs and the 5-spd tranny 67lbs

I wonder how much all the stuff will weigh???????

Final weight should be below 2000lbs.......I think.....

Any guesses on the final race weight without driver?

we come re-visit when I'm done....

In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
