You'd know better

Being only a very "passive" P-car fan (love em, but would not shell out the $ to get the ones I would own) you would probably know better than me. I have heard in various places on line that they are very liberal with their weight numbers meaning they try to get them as low as possible. Do some more research and let us know! You could simply weigh your car as well. A good location is the local dump - accurate scales and it is free!
