I found out the weight of the gas
1 gallon of water equals 8.33 lbs.
1 gallon of gasoline equals 5.8 to 6.5 lbs. depending on grade ect. but averafe will be arround 6.25lbs so for a 16gal tank like mine it would weigh 100lbs and 112.5 for an 18gal tank.

These numbers are from the net I would have done the conversion on my own but it is snowing and my chemistery book is in my trunk.

Thanks phantom. I'll see if I can get more traction once the suspension on the car is fixed. The car has had some float to it for a while, but the struts decided to take a dump this week. Now I have an excuse to go for a sportier suspension. :P

How did you measure that 0-60? 1/4 mile track? G-tech? stopwatch?

Not applicable to a SC car. With the instant torque from the SC you will want softer tires/less air/warm road to help grip.

I had a friend of mine ride along with me and time the runs with a stopwatch, so the times are fairly accurate. A G-tech would be nice to have though.
