Mine weighs approximately 3,400 lbs, with the gas tank about 1/4 - 1/2 full.

the scale had to be wrong. with the backseat out, an aluminum driveshaft, lighter hood and no wing my car still weighed like 3350 with 1/4 a tank of gas.

Mine only weighs that much without me in it but I have a significant amount of weight savings. That scale is way off.
