I'm guessing mine will be in the 425 mark because I wont have the A/C compressor and I'll have different exhaust on it. So maybe around 700-750 for drivetrain weight? If anyone has a hanging scale I can borrow I'd get a weight. I think the axles are 350 front and 300 rear and then add in the tires at 90 each and then wheels at 40 each brings it to around 1900 and then add in shocks, links, tube, seats, steering.... I dont see how it will be below 3000lbs....

You might be surprised my buggy is on the large size and when we added all the safety crap for the XRRA a few years back it tipped the scales at 3600#
