    is the formula much lighter?

    is it really 100lbs lighter than a trans am? what about a trans am ws6. if the formula has the options like t-tops and power windows is it still lighter? anyone know how much their formulas weigh? im just curious cause ive read people saying its about 100lbs lighter but would that have to be with 0 options?

    I can see 100 pounds easy.

    Power seats, power windows, stereo (monsoon), etc..
    Adds up quickly.

    My fully loaded WS.6 was 3450 with a 1/4 tank.
    3590 now. Freaking iron block and 9" rearend.

    I don't believe the stripper Formula's weighed 3200 pounds.
    I always thought the difference was more like 150 pounds at the max.

    that makes more sense. 250 is a serious difference.

    Hey now, Im 250, but Im not fat, just tall

    I wonder how they weigh so much less, bumpers and side skirts are the visual difference and thats not much weight there.
