Why not just take the car and get it weighed?.....
Don't own any of the cars. :)

Just want to find a way to compare the weights since i have found no other reliable sources.

The weights published are MINIMUM weights for each vehicle.

I used to be a Tech man for a large drag strip. Many true stock vehicles are going to be as much as 300-600 lbs heavier. Depending on the options included.
The "stock" racers tend to have to have weight added to make class.

If i want to compare different cars weight, and i imagine them all without options (throw out the radio, ac, powersteering etc.) is the weights pretty much right then?
