    My Murci roadster weight

    I lost my Murci guess weight thread. I had stated 3580 lbs, but I forgot my 185 lbs and 1/2 a tank of gas. Recalculated weight is 3350 wet. Lp 640 weighs 3638 dry, so I'm at least 300 lbs lighter and close to the 631 hp of the lp640. I should be able to match its performance. Maybe.

    You were the closest, and it was a pleasant surprise to me. I thought it would be heavier. Now to get a dynoe print out and a 1/4 mile slip.

    You should be able to do better than just hang with the real Mercy's if your tune is good. If I have enough time this coming week Im going to weigh my Diablo Roadster. It will be interesting to see how they compare in weight.
    Post up a video if possible of your dyno, I love to hear turbo's spool up!

    After a week of driving we'll hook up a laptop and send the info to Kevin at car tuning, then he sends us his final tune. Shortly after we run his tune I'll want to put it on a dyno to see if we can get a little more and to document. I've heard lots of hp claims and I'm not saying they're not true, but nothing beats a document and I'll print it good or bad. As far as my seat of the pants dyno, I don't have anything to compare it to. I would Like to have a ride in fieroxs car or dark horizons to compare with.
