Recently, someone (forgot who) posted a weight for a 5ktq of 3360#.
This is intriguing because my '91 200 Q supposedly weighs in around 3800#
(gvwr - payload capacity), but I've never put it on a scale. If I remember
correctly, this is about the same # reported in the auto rags. What's the
diff? how do i get my weight down?
Based on this, and thinking about my last post (re: hondas), here's some
Accord 2400# 120bhp 20#/hp
4kcsq 2850# 115bhp 24.3#/hp
5ktq 3350# 162bhp 21#/hp
200q20v 3800# 217bhp 18#/hp
This reminds me of a colleague's comment (he's a performance driving
instructor with an '89 944 Turbo): "the cheapest performance increase is to
reduce the weight of the car." food for thought.
