If you run aluminum heads on your 302. It's 3580 if you run a 351W instead of the 302.

According to the January Fastrack the weight would be 3280 unless your engine was 313 ci or greater, then it would be 3580.

Ted 18,

I am not sure if the fastracks, which supercede the 08 rule book, are caught up with printing the changes.

Weight structure will be as follows, should be in next fastrack.

94 up mustangs with approved iron heads, under 313 cu in = 3280
use approved spec aluminum head = +100
use above 313 cu in = +300

Note, above 313 you still have to use the approved heads, either iron or aluminum.

So aluminum head 351 adds up to 3680.

Default make it clear

Although within AS there are several chassis platforms (Camaro, Capri, GTO, Mustang), a couple of engine displacement options (313 cu in & below, over 313 cu in), and a couple of head material options (iron, aluminum), the overall combinations are not infinite.

I suggest that in the final version of the AS Specification Table that EVERY combination has a tabulated weight. Please let's not leave it up to interpretation, and worse yet let's not have people get out their calculators just to figure out what their car configuration should weigh. Tech inspectors and competitors should be able to find every configuration in the Spec Table and pluck the weight right out of the table. No fuss, no muss.

In my opinion it won't make the table too busy, rather, it will make it more clear. Just look at the questions already being asked here by intelligent folks.

More 2 cents.

3680....That's just nuts, almost the same weight as my Expedition tow vehicle.

yea, 3680. kyle has been trying to convince me for several weeks now that i can keep up with my 351 Cobra R carrying that car pool weight.

i don't know you keep tires on the car with that weight or brakes and I am not sure how you stop.

My arguement precisely. Maybe we'll get it all ironed out next year...after they see that freight trains don't stop on a dime.

Just don't run the big motor and the car won't be so heavy.
