Default Re: my kawasaki beetle project

IMO going to even get anywhere around 800lbs using a actual vw body. I was on a late model race team for several years and our car which had an aluminum skin, floor and seat weighed approx 2000 lbs. A 2007 Ninja zx-14 wieghs over 400 lbs. Surprisenly a 1967 beetle weighed +/- 1800 lbs which is less then I would have guessed but still.

A t-Rex weighs 0ver 900lbs
