thats what im hoping for...

stock auto maximas like mine tend to run in the 14.7-14.8 range with a couple people able to squeeze a 14.5-14.6 out of them i would be more than happy with a 14.7

I've always considered Lincolns to be the last set of wheels you own before you go into a wheelchair.

I can't believe how heavy the LS is for a medium sized car, but you are quite a bit off on your weight figure. They are more like 3800 pounds.

And it depends on what year these cars are as to how close the race will be. In 2003 they upped the horsepower by 11 and 28 for the V6 and V8 respectively. Car and Driver ran a 2003 V8 to a 15.1.

Although slow from the factory.. The V8 LS can be made fairly quick with few modifications. I know I had one... But in stock form the GXP would run with it and the Sexima would have it but half a car if not more.

And grimm they are a fat car over weight. Keep in mind they were not built to go fast the were built solely for comfort.

Gross weight and Curb weight are two different beasts
here they are

Quote:
Curb Weight is the actual weight of the truck without any passengers or cargo in it. It’* the base weight that is used in subtraction to calculate the total weight of the vehicle with passengers and cargo.

Gross Vehicle Weight is the total weight of the loaded vehicle. This includes the vehicle itself and the cargo that is loaded within that vehicle.

Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings are the ratings that are calculated by the manufacturers as to be the amount of weight that the vehicle will be when the vehicle itself is weighed filled with gasoline and loaded according to manufacturer’* specifications.
SO the sticker inside the door is correct.


and Lash Im in you didn't know that lol
