This has become a hot topic among my sled buds: What is the real world weight difference between the REV chassis and the ZX chassis, all other factors being equal? One side of the argument says it's close to 50 lbs., while the other side is holding at less than 25 lbs. We are talking about a REV 800 vs. am MXZX 800.

As I recall, it is something like 25 lbs.

MXZX 800 = 474 lbs. dry weight
REVx800 = 450 lbs.

This is all from memory and might not be fact. Just what I recall.
