I don't know about the weight but I have seen Harris cars take some incredible hits and the driver walked away.

Not to disagree with EGO but I have seen a harris take a light hit and break alot of welds.

I have no problems with your input! It all goes back to if your chassis/car was built on Monday or Friday!
A little off of the subject but I watched a NEW prof. built street stock come apart behind the seat comming down the straight away. The car was only run for practice and did not have a dent! It was almost funny if it had not happened with abour 20 cars comming up to speed behind him. The front rolled to turn one/two and the rearend dug into the track and flipped over 2 times and almost rolled right back into alighnment with the front end in the corner.
