    Anyone know off the top of their head what the weight difference is between the fox body 5.0 coupe vs. 94-95 5.0 coupe vs. the 96-98 4.6 coupe vs. the 99-04 4.6 coupe???

    Thanks

    I agree street racing is not the place to prove who has the fastest car whether it happens light to light or in the canyons; unfortunately, that's where the proving grounds tend to be for a lot of people.

    the 94 cars weight More than the fox bodies for sure, I want to say around 200lbs. Adding a cage in the fox would make it closer especially when its a convertable

    The numbers on that site do not seem right. My 95GT weighed 3550 with a full tank of gas and me in it. at the time i weighed 150.
