okay we have the ccworked out to 2050 cc approx. Now with the density of cast iron at 7.15g per cc
14714grams would be the weight of a cast iron block the size of the model. So 14.7kgs approx multiplied by 2.2 to get lbs. And you get 32lbs of a cast iron block the size of the 1:18 model. Now multiply that by 18 and you get a car sized cast iron blcok that is 582lbs. Now this isn't close the the weight of the car. WTF???????????????? The world makes no sense
