Thanks Very Happy . You refering to the trans/t-case? yes they are heavy. that Stak wieghts 140pds alone. As for the rest I think its fairly light. Im trying to keep weight in mind, But it still has to put up with 550+hp and full throttle beat downs. The stock chevy frame I had before was noodled. The 2x3 is only .120 wall. I can pick the entire thing up, has to be less than 200pds. Im shooting for 4000, if its under 4500 Ill be happy. Yes somethings are alittle overkill but I do not want them to fail. I tend to wheel my stuff fairly hard afro ...

Actually I was refering to everything being "heavy". I get 500+ horse's, and big parts. And I'm all for overkill. I'm thinking your 4k goal is a bit light though. The average KOH race car is still tipping the scales between 4500 and 5500 lbs. And thats using all lightweight components...

Gm frames go all "noodley" because they aren't boxed to begin with, and don't have enough crossmembers. I'm certain you won't have the same problem with this setup...

True on the weight issue now that I think about it. . I was 5600 before, all loaded up. And now that I've decided to run a toy cab on it I prob won't really save a ton if weight. I'm not really to worried about it. It'll be what it'll be lol.
