Weight difference

Post by flyguyeddy » Wed Oct 19, 2016 10:18 am

Is there a huge difference between the wasser case and a type 1? Im seeing 30 pounds mentioned but it cant possibly be THAT much

No, but you have to be specific what you are comparing to. This bare case is 41.6 lbs

Yeah some may call it overkill, but you can't have too much overkill.

Mag is around 35% lighter than aluminium, so around 27lb for T1 case.

Consider adding the weight of a deep sump to the T1 case unless going dry sump.
The wasser will hold ~4.5L in the sump as-is.
