Default Minimum/stripped C5 Weight

I thought this would be lighter. Skip to 3 minutes for the scaling.

I would have guessed 2100 or less.

The guy is a bit of a goof. So 500 lbs for body work? That seems reasonable.

1320 Video is pretty good, but I agree with you, Cletus is annoying. The roadkill C4 was 2100 with a cage (who they are copying), so I think they are BS'ing.

Doors alone have to be close to 200lb.

The stripped C4 looked like they never lowed it back to original ride height. Suspension geometry is pretty screwed up like that. Would have been interesting to see what it did at "normal" ride height.
