Weighed my 88TC

I weighed my 88TC yesterday on a set of computerized scales used for race car setup. Total weight with about 3/4 tank of gas was 3420 lbf with the following distribution: lf = 964, rf = 928, lr = 764, rr = 764. I guess the battery contributes to the l/r imbalance, but I was surprised there was so much more on the left. I was pleased, however, with the total. I know they are supposed to weigh over 3400, but it has been my experience that cars always weigh more than they're supposed to. The car has all the options except leather.

Does anyone else have weight distribution data? Total weight?

cool always wondered what these actually weighed and the weight distribution is good to know too. 964 vs. 928 that makes for a 36 lb battery
