Hey guys, does anybody know what is the weight of the bare NAERC chassis (meaning no roll-cage, suspension or any other parts)? According to a free 3d model of NAERC chassis (on which I noticed some inaccuracies, slightly different tubing and extra reinforcements), it has a total volume of 41,889 cubic centimeters (2,556 cubic inches), but I would be interested to know how this measures when converted into mass. There are different conversion formulas depending on the material type, but obviously the most accurate way to calculate the chassis weight is to directly measure the real deal. So, if anybody can help with actual numbers, please let me know.

PS: The 3d chassis can be downloaded from the following link: http://grabcad.com/library/naerc-lamborghini-diablo-murcielago-kit-car-chassis-1

So, it should be something like 723,348 lbs / 327.9473 kg?

No,
2556 in3 x 0.283 lbs/in3= 723 lbs

It's same, just being written in a different way than the one you use in the USA. The "723,348 lbs" was copied from my localized Windows calculator, whereas the "327.9473 kg" was copied from a units convertion program (Convert). In my country, we write 10,005.20 USD (ten thousand and five US dollars and 20 cents) like this 10 005,20 ЩД. We do use comma as a decimal symbol instead of dot, and large numbers are shown in groups of 3 digits divided by space.
