Is this wiki article full of crap? (RX-7 Weight)

Hey guys I'm looking at Wikipedia for the FD RX-7 and it says that the Type R was 1150KG and Bathurst R was 1050KG. I can't find the sources for these numbers anywhere, is this fake? only thing I can find is 2700+ LBS.

Mazda RX-7 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thank you

FD is around 2800 pounds. No models varied a significant amount for this. The Wiki article is wrong.

Some of the Japanese models are pretty light...I would think a '93 RZ would be around 2600lb. The RX-7 SP in Australia was around 2650lb.

Yes it's full of crap.

I have a list of all the JDM model weights (over forty different models) on FDRX7.com

I think you'll have to join up to read the thread though. Tell them I sent you

Thread is in Tech Reference and FAQ.
