Got my updated tranny back and here are those Driveshaft weights.

Stocker = 16.5lbs
3.5" Aluminum = 14.25lbs
_________________________
Loss of 2.25lbs ( rotating )

The 3.5" aluminum shaft was from Inland Empire. It had a beefier trans yoke and 1350 u joint up front with just a stock style rear u joint.

Both driveshafts were trans yoke to rear u joint.

Not as much of a loss as I'd have thought but the yoke and shaft are definitely bigger on the Inland.

Did the front sway bar swap today and it's not even close to whoever had 30lbs. Not even sure it was worth the $$ and time to swap it out.

Bars were bare, no end links etc.

Stock 32mm Swaybar = 21.5lbs
F Body 36mm Swaybar = 14.5lbs
_________________________
Loss of 7lbs :thinking:


Rear Pinion Snubber = 1/2lb with the bolts

Yeah, I hear you. I went to ship one and I realized it wasn't 30lbs??? Maybe the made different ones using different alloys? :confused:

Hard to lose 421lbs when you're 6'2 and 200lbs but I guess there is 15lbs in here somewhere to reach my ideal UFC weight class. At least it'd be more than the measly 7.5lbs I just lost Tuesday.

BTW, the frame notch kit box weighted 60lbs and it's pretty much one cardboard box with no padding inside. :frown:
Guess I'm adding about 70lbs when the notch and 325/50's go on. :crybaby:

CAS V2 FMIC with 2 hoses and 4 T Bolt Clamps = 30lbs dead on.

3" Intercooler pipes with a Blitz Blow off ( no hoses or clamps ) = 5lbs

PTC 9.5" N/L torque converter dry = 28lbs, 4 ounces.

I'll lose another 6lbs when I swap out the Precision 5 disc for the PTC. Getting close to the Vette Convertible weight of 3221lbs and finally can say I'm lighter than the ZR1 at 3333lbs .
