yeah man, that's what i was thinking, or maybe just pull off the freeway onto a truck weigh-in station. but i'm big on getting the weight down nice and low, shooting for 2600 or even 2500 lbs if that's possible from my 2800 lb car. but, djp, full interior strip (trunk, back seats and carpeting) power steering, spare tire...soon to ditch the seats and battery too for lighter weight counterparts...
