Weights

May 6, 2009 update on robench's 1992 Ford Mustang LX 5.0

Just measured the weights:

  • 3200 lbs with 1/2 tank of gas
  • 55.8% F, 44.2 R weight distribution (with driver)
  • Corner weights even in front, 80lb off in the rear (with driver)

Better distribution that I thought, but heavier than I hoped.

Even with the A/C, rear seat, and lots of sound deadener removed, the bigger wheels, brakes, and chassis stiffening have it weighing about 50lbs more than a stock fully loaded 93 Mustang I used to own.
