Question about differences in curb weights

I know the GC8 2.5RS curb weight is around 2830 lbs. But what is the curb weight of the GDA 2.5RS and the WRX? Thanks

I'm almost positive Curb weight is the weight of the whole car *d'oh* including all the fluids (fuel, coolant, wiper fluid, etc.). I'd say just run the car always with 1 gallon of fuel and lose a few pounds off my ass for an extreme lightweight car. :p The person you're racing won't know what hit 'em!
wow, almost a 250 lb weight difference between MT 99 RS and a MT 02 WRX :eek:

Yes, for a 250% increase in torsional rigidity. The car didn't get heavier for no reason guys :) The GC8 chassis vault tight and very stiff and the WRX is much stiffer still. Guess where the extra 100kg came from? :)
no sunroof - less weight, stiffer body
side airbags - more weight
aluminum hood - less weight
