Max weight is 3000??? Or do you mean minimum weight?? A monte can weigh whatever you want it to, its all in the cage, motor and all the bolt ons. Minimum barwork, lightweight aluminum everything 2400# or so or a "tank" could weigh 3500#+.

Sixwillwin is right. A Monte Carlo can weigh what ever you want it to. We build one that weighed a little over 3000 with a 200 lb. driver. But I Think they are saying min. not max. RVR racing.

Mine weighed 2600 without the lead. Got it up to about 3100 now so the percentages are right.
