good point...

corvette design has traditionally been a lightweight body on a heavy frame (with a big heavy engine).

Thanks for sharing. Keep in mind my 87 was 3090 stock auto cross trim, and the 91 was over 3300 in the same trim. Basically a 93 has much much heavier trans, bumpers, interior, exhaust, flywheel, wiring, etc.,

Bottom line, start early, end light.

To make power to weight ratio for my class I have to keep my race weight at 3000. That is with me (225) and an completely full tank of fuel. There's still stock glass and other parts, the car can get plenty light. 2500 car weight yes, 2500 race weight I'm not sure. I think there was a build in the race section with a 4 cylinder combo that was close.
