I would be very surprised if it weighs that light unless it's all chromoly and glass or carbon fiber, etc. Maybe without driver. I could be wrong but that sounds very light. Let us know.

Congrats on the new car...very nice piece. It should be a fun car with your drivetrain. Send more pix once you get it ready to rock.

That's a nice looking ride you have there. It's probably mild steel tubing. Looks like it was all mig welded. 2500lbs will be close. Add the bars and get it recertified. NHRA needs their $150. Unless you're getting it for IHRA. Then it's only $75. Wish you many, many safe passes. Dave
