Torn series racer Chris Robinson posted this on FB, this is the full race weight with a full tank of gas, 26" Maxxis Ceros tires, dual Hiper beadlocks & tire balls. The thing I find really impressive is the damn near perfect weight distribution. (1st pic)

The Renegade 1000 is 801lbs with less than half a tank of gas, stock beadlock rims, 4 ply tires and muzzy exhaust (14 lbs heavier than stock).  The distribution is just about the same, both are balanced very well. (2nd pic)

I wonder what the weight distribution is with the rider seated?

Don't read too much into weight distribution. As soon as
you accelerate, them numbers go out the window, Or I
should say, up in the air. But it's a good starting point
for the track you plan on being on. Like I always say....
Pulling wheelies on hill climbs can be a thrill.........NOT !!!!

I just wish they both would do something about the overall weight.  800+ pounds is not something I want to get stuck or have on top of me for any length of time.

I wish they would too, they sure don't feel as heavy as they are but like you said if it rolls on top of you it's going to be a bitch to get it off. Would be nice to see some lighter high strength alloys used but the price would skyrocket...

They both break the way it is now, if they cut more weight then everyone will bitch because more parts break.  I can't say mine is light, but I will say It hides its weight very well and I wouldn't want it lighter if it was to give up reliability.

You dont have to sacrifice strength for weight if the right materials are used...yours was little lighter from the factory anyways, considering the tack job they did on your trailing arm. When I saw that, it made me go check around on mine for crap like that...lol
