TERCEL1: Weights 'n' Measures



05-21-2007: Okay... I just got back from getting TERCEL1
weighed (on the 4 cornered scales) ...and here are the results:

The car was, put on the scales as it is when it rolls up to the
starting line, ready to make a 1/4 mile run, with a 1/4 TANK gas,
lightweight battery, no rear seat or passanger seat, drag
radials on (15 psi.) rear tires (40 psi) and a very EMPTY trunk!

Keep in mind, during the installation of the 4EFTE motor into
TERCEL1, several things were changed which would give
my car a bit different weight then a similar '89 Tercel.

For example, the car rolled onto the scales MINUS all it's air
condition pumps, condensers, & plumbing. TERCEL1 never
had power steering so that'd be taken into consideration as
well as the fact that strapped to the motor is a lightweight
flywheel.

At weigh-in today, TERCEL1 sported ONLY the driver's
seat while the drag radials was wrapped around 9.18 lbs
14" KOSEI K1-TS wheels. A 15.78 lbs Odyssey PC680MJT
battery provides the juice.

...and now the envelope please...

1812 lbs (without me) and 2037 lbs (with driver)

Here's a breakdown of weight/distribution:

LF = 576 lbs -- RF = 613 lbs = 1189(F) = 65.2%
LR = 344 lbs -- RR = 290 lbs =. 634(R) = 34.8%
