    For those of you that don’t want to watch.
    4080 pounds with around 2 gallons of fuel.
    CFTP car should be under 4000 with a empty tank.
    Also some good pulls in the video.
    Enjoy!

    Just watched it. It really surprised me to be that low. I assumed it was gonna be about 150 more.

    I wonder why Ford overstated the weight?

    Is the Ford stated weight with a full tank of fuel? That should add another 80’ish lbs. Even then, that is still less than Ford stated weight.

    I dont watch the vids, but im glad he is getting us the info, and fast too! We have the weight, what the car puts down, and a 1/4 mile time. I think the dude is okay, I dont watch his vids, but he is getting us the info we;ve been asking. Great guy imo.

    Agree. Doesn't seem like the cocky type, either. Information is good.

    Just an FYI a full tank of gas (16 gallon tank) = 160lbs. 1 Gallon is approx 10lbs.

    less actually. A gallons of gas is around 6 lbs. so roughly 95-100 lbs.

    Exactly. That’s why it floats on water. A gallon of water weighs 8.34. Sorry I make gasoline for a living.:whew:

    Speed Phenom is an excellent gentleman who many of us respect and greatly appreciate for his enthusiasm and fantastic content. I don’t do this often, but I support his efforts by purchasing his apparel of his web site. Show him support by buying some of his gear! When I’m driving my BULLITT I wear his shirts/hoodie thinking about what it must be like to run a GT 500. Thanks Speed Phenom for all you do!

    Thanks. Only giving credit where credit deserved. And I also appreciate sellers of gasoline (especially if selling 93 octane). Thanks for all you do too.

    A said at one time I didn't mind him. Then someone pointed out the clickbait titles on a few videos and I was like ok screw that. Now he is actually providing what many of us have been wondering.

    I think a lot of people don't like seeing a young kid doing this etc. I don't care how old he is as long as he is giving us valid info on this car. Are his videos my favorite? no but its good info.

    I also haven't found many youtube people that I am just like wow this person is great. So many try to put on a persona for their videos to get the views.
