I've got a 2003 coupe that's pretty much stock except a bassani exhaust. Here in Cedar Rapids there isn't a scale around town or within 40 mi. I figure someone has actually weighed the car. I know ford says 3665 what's some real figures? I got a gtech pro competition last week and need to know actual weight. By the way the shift light on it works great cause you just plug it into the lighter socket and do a rpm cal. with your factory tach.

I weighed mine at the track with me in it - 3960. minus me 260 equals 3700. That's with 1/2 tank of gas. Ford's numbers sound really close!

Thanks for the info on the weight. If it would ever quit raining here maybe I could get some numbers. I guessed with me in the car at 3850 with 1/2 tank of gas. It showed with 2 runs 4.5 sec 0-60 and 360 hp 365 lbs torque avg. 90 mi. to the nearest track Cordova.

On the Englishtown Raceway Park NJ. Scales. My 03 had a 1/2 tank of gas..nitrous bottle in trunk...nothing taken out...even the baby seat was back there.

3,884 pounds with me in it...so minus an even 200 for me and your at 3684

Sure is no lightwieght. My 1969 Chevelle SS weighed 3570 and my 93 Coupe Prototype 96 Cobra Valvetrain weighed in at 3230.

Drive up to Cedar Falls Raceway's 1/4 mile track they have a Test N Tune session this Friday from 6p to 10pm. The track was rebuilt last year, so the pavement is nearly new. They're about 65 miles away from central C.R.
Website address/phone
Cedar Falls Raceway
6400 W. Bennington Rd.
Cedar Falls, IA 50613
Track Phone (319) 987-2537

Or you can drive 45 miles (from Marion) out to Earlville, IA there is a 1/4 mile track (Tri-State Raceway) there. Just take hiway 13 north 30 miles until you reach hiway 20 , then go east 11 miles to the Earlville exit and you're there as the track is on the south side of the exit ramp alongside hiway 20. On Sat. June 7th they're doing a test-n-tune session! But I have to work that day, d'oh!!:mad:

BTW Hello to everyone is this forum, I'm not an '03 Cobra owner, but would like to be if $$ wasn't such an issue.:(

It looks like were all in the ballpark, allowing for the vagaries of scales, gas guages and asses in seats (You know who you are:eek: )

J/K, I weigh 235 myself, @5'7", I'm no shrinking violet!

Atkins diet? Why not?

I got 3640 lbs on a truck stop scale with me (195lbs) in the car, along with a full interior, my sub/ box/ amp, spare tire/ jack/ crow bar, car seat, etc. Oh yeah, mine is a 1999 Cobra. My bad. Ha, Ha!

2003 Cobra Coupe.weighed July 06 with the stock cats removed, and a bassani high flow catted x-pipe and bassani catback installed. With 1/4 tank of gas, and all other things stock and in the car, weighed 3580. Weighed on a certified truck scale. Now, with a prochamber, flowmaster catback, A solid 8.8 and 1/3 tank of gas weighed 100 lbs less. 3480. That's with the stock wheels and all other weight in the car. I'm hoping to get the car down to 3400 in track trim. swaybar, spare and jack out. with lighter wheels out back. We'll see.

At the MM&FF '03/'04 Cobra Shootout back in Oct. of '04 (March 2005 issue), I weighed 3870 w/ me in the car. I had a 6-point rollbar that weighed basically 70#, and I also removed the spare/jack. I had approx. 1/4 to 1/2 a tank (can't recall off the top of my head). Aside from that spare, I had 0 weight reduction mods done.

Ratt I weighed 3685 absolutely stock with about 1/2 tank of gas, and Ratt II weighed 3678 with the same amount of gas, on the HRP scales. The 170 lb driver was not in the car(s).
