Number 3 detailed how to take weight out of a 5th Gen at the OE level and came up with 150 pounds in weight savings which translates to 3,710 sans driver and fuel. Add 65 pounds for fuel and 180 pounds for a driver and your track ready at 3,955 pounds. The Pedders USA Camaro hits the track at 4,180 pounds. The 225 pounds difference is in the supercharger and fluid coolers after weight reductions in wheels, exhaust and suspension. The theoretical vehicle #3 was 'building' had the benefit of thinner glass and a variety of other small reductions i.e. the fuel door latch.
