  • Your car weight from Drag Week

    How did you car weight during the week compare to what it's weighed at other times? Last year I weighed mine in Tulsa and it weighed 3708. This year it weighed anywhere from 3500 to 3560 which I think is a little more realistic.

    I weighed mine at Tulsa the last day last year, it weighed 2700 without me in it. I forgot to weigh this year. oh well. Maybe at Drag Weekend I'll get a chance?

      I felt mine was pretty spot on. I weighed it in Topeka in 2011 and it weighed 3,650 lbs with a full tank, I weigh ~160lbs for 3,810lbs. And every track weighed out between 3,840-3,850lbs this year, and I've added to the exhaust and swapped in a 9" axle since 2011.

        mine weighed 3670 which is close to what it has weighed before. it was a little lighter because of the centerline rims instead of the heavier cragar ss rims.

            4800 on the button with me in it and 1/2 tank of fuel. was 4760 when I weighed in Noble last year and 4760 in Bowling Green the year before. I added a bottle, but never turned it on this year. I think both the truck and me will be shedding some weight.

              That's my plan too...The car just lost 35 lbs with a new fiberglass hood and I could stand to lose that much myself! Glad to know the 35XX lbs is what it weighs rather than the 3700 I thought it did for a year. It does mean I'm making less power than I thought I was to runs the time I am though...

                    Nice numbers on a virgin setup. Might need to change your tag line... she's not quite a half ton lighter! Man, that's a lot of cage @ 3450?!
