I need to know what a metric weighs with a basic cage, no ballast with driver. I am torn between building a Nova, (3500 lbs with driver and 32 gal fuel cell) or a metric. Lighter is faster, but I know this Nova is fast. I dont care about percentages, I just need base weight.. Thanks

It's pretty easy to get around 3000# without driver. Both of ours were just under 3000 without driver or ballast.

86 Monte, 150 lbs in trunk, Powerglide, 355, 17gal cell, 180 lb driver = 3280 lb
82 Monte, 100 lbs in trunk, 3 speed, 355, 22 gal cell, 260 lb driver = 3235 lb

mine is 2925# race ready, with driver (190#), 18 gallons fuel. Stock body (stripped to nothing), good amount of bars but it is chrome moly, steel heads and intake. No ballast and 50.0% rear
