How does that make 3.2kgs 3,584g then?

Weights are generally in lbs and oz, or kg and g..... not sure how you are converting things!

1kilo or kilogram = 1000grams

still, 1 kilo is 2.2 lbs, 2.2046 to be exact.

Yeah it's called a mathematical error, I redid my math. Its much easier to say that if this car holds true to its weight when the production car arrives it would be a lot closer to a 7 pound car then an 8 pound car like mine, which is 7.8 pounds, I could put it on a diet, and then see what feels better, looks who's editing their posts, oh my god, the hipocrite himself....

For the record, I think the Durango has some really cool looking features, and looks cool period! I was just asking a simple question. I have no intention of entertaining negativity from people who go from thread to thread watching my every move. I wish the car success. Certain people go into the Serpent thread and post negativity all the time, and they don't even own the car, causing trouble. I have every right to post in this thread without people asking me to get out of here. Im not putting the Durango down, nor will I put it down when it comes out. I don't post negative things about cars I don't own or have never driven, like a tremendous amount of people who have nothing better to do.

Let the race results crown the king! I hope to see TD pick up someone of Billy Easton's skills so it can be a fair fight

The reason why some people credit the Serpent 811's design to Gerd is because prior to Serpent's reorganization, Gerd was the one who was developing the Serpent buggy program. Once the reorganization began and certain programs had to be cut, Gerd (presumably) took his design and founded Durango.

That I'm aware of, there's no substantial evidence to show that the current Serpent buggy is/was primarily Gerd's design, though it would be only natural for Serpent to build upon what basic design work was already done prior to the split; if only to cut down on time and more R & D. The current, soon-to-be-released Durango itself seems to have gone through many, many changes even right up until the last minute, so we can hope that the big bugs will be worked out, but this in itself is no guarantee.

Honestly, I like both buggies and I was very happy to see the revised radio tray on the Serpent which looks even better than I was expecting. In fact, while it may not be politically correct to say so, I think that the 811 may have a slight edge but time will tell.

C,mon guys, let's try to keep this from turning into another urinating contest.

Well said, I don't know what happens behind the scenes.
