    I don't know if this should be a tech post, or what. But I just checked out how much my baby weighs and it's 3,815 lbs! Dude... '05 Miata weighs 2785 and '05 RX-8 weighs 3675... Someone have a remedy for my sudden nausea?

    Righteous. That will be my last resort if no one decides to buy this dang car. You know what... even better idea... Save up my money, buy some engine mounts and a 90 CRX... and drop that F22 in that mo fugga! Does that sound like a sound plan, gentlemen?

    Zoom zoom. Then something is wrong with my engine. Because I'm going too fast for the weight, in my honest opinion. Where's the closest dyno to Modesto?

    No way it is that heavy! Maybe the max vehicle weight is 3815 lbs but i bet you it is a sub-3k lb car. Put it in a scale and let us know what it really weighs.

    That's gotta be the curb weight. a Supra targa, 1986.5-1992 weighs that much, and that thing is a beast.

    No, he's probably looking at GVWR, not curb.

    Hey kids....quit arguing.

    From Edmunds.com:

    Curb Weight: 2822 lbs.

    I don't think Honda has ever produced a car even near 3800 pounds, SUV's and such excluded of course.
