Default Weighed my pig

Fully dressed 10AE plus turbo and goodies:

FL 600 FR 640
RL 623 RR 535

Total: 2398 lbs

That's top up, 3/4 tank of gas, and everything in the car that would normally be there when I drive it (stuff in glove box, tools, spare & jack in trunk, etc).

I have use of the scales tomorrow too, so I'm going to start looking up corner weighting guides.

My 2000 spent more time at the buffet table: 2460 lbs with rollbar, turbo, gas, subwoofers, without me nor the butterfly and door bars. "Dem's good weight!"

Must be an ultra-lite battery, or maybe only the negative is connected?

Obviously the same, but it changes the distribution slightly to the back.

I know, I was just being an ***.

Seriously, though, did you bang the sides of the car so the birds inside would leave their perches?*
