what did it weigh? I did a search and found the original thread, but none of the threads from the middle of March back work.

You wouldn't happen to remember what it weighed, would ya? I'm in a discussion with some Cougar owners who are claiming the high road on the weight issue ("Prelude's are pigs, yada, yada, yada"). The factory numbers are almost identical, weightwise, but now I'm getting the "Yeah, well I weighed mine and it's blah, blah, blah." I'm just looking for some real-world numbers.

Kinda juvenile, I guess, but the last thing I want to hear are Cougar owners talking down 'bout my baby.

mine is a 2000 SH, i weighed it at an industrial scale which was certified to be accurate ±10 pounds. i subtracted the weight of me and the gas and got 2820 pounds. spare and jack were still in there, full interior, totally stock lude.

incidentally, when i entered the actual weight (including me and the gas) into my gtech and did some runs, it came out with 165 whp, which is just what i'd expect. if i enter the weight honda claims, plus me, i get like 180hp which seems a little.... optimistic.

Still have the sunroof, A/C and radio though. I have also corner balanced it with a full tank of gas, all safty equiptment, and me in it and here is what I got.

FL FR

total weight 3102
front 62.6%
back 37.4%
LR cross to FR 48.7%
RR cross to FL 51.3%
Left 53.2%
right 46.8%
