what i mean is that the gross weight is not the base weight plus the max load capacity weight. other cars i have checked say, for example, base weight is 2100lbs, gross weight is 3160, and the maxload is 680 for the front, and 520 for the rear. that would mean that the gross should be 3300lbs. yeah it might be off by only 140 lbs, but thats about how much difference there is between an se-r and a base model. just as a side note, vehix.com says it weighs 2420.
I'm gonna take an un-educated stab at this and go ahead and say that its heavier because it comes with a lil heavier engine, tranny, and beefed up suspension along with ABS and other safety things. Thats just my guess.
Oh, and Hagasan is just in denial everybody. He weighs in at 350lbs, and he is only 4' 1".
