Must be all glass, that's hella light for a truck. sorry to hi jack the thread, just noticed your planned weight.svted said:Thats what I thought. Going NA, as big as I can afford. Probally 598 built for some spray. Should come in at 2000-2100lbs w/BB and glide. Probally this time next year I hope. Need to sell my 88 BB notch before I start eng. Got to love those trucks. Ed
My chassis is all CM also, body is Steel with a FG front cap. I don't think it is heavier than your truck, there's nothing there but the hull.svted said:JSracing, all cm chassis, the body comes in at 140# complete
A friend of mine built basically a Pro Stock S10 truck. He had Vanishing Point Race Cars weld up a CM PST legal chassis. After talking to Garley & Randy Daniels who were running PST, they told Joey to use carbon fiber for the body if he wanted the truck to weigh in around 2000 lbs.Svted, I am not saying you are wrong but an F150 in relation to size of an S10 is alot. Plus the weight of the BBF compared tp a SBC is alot. I would guess more around 2400-2500 lbs. Just my guess. All I can base it off of is my MS VPRC Mustang w/108" wheel base weighs 2400 lbs w/o driver with an A460 block 557. What is the wheel base on your truck? The PST chassis have a 125" WB & they are small trucks. Good luck on your build...JSracing said:My chassis is all CM also, body is Steel with a FG front cap.

Are you including wheels tires, motor, etc?
Maybe mine is lighter than I think, I haven't weighed it. :shock:
Which SFI full chassis rating (25.1E, 25.2, or 25.4) are you shooting for with your truck? You might have to add more bars depending on how fast you want to go in a door car/truck. 8.49 to 7.50 needs to be at least SFI 25.4 legal, and faster than 7.49 needs to be at least SFI 25.2 or 25.1E legal.svted said:I might be a little happy on the weight guesstimate (no more than 100lbs) This is a sportsmans chassis (7.50 ) No where near the bars that are in a promod and prostock type. The only Ford part on the body is the 3rd brake light. Ed
