yep, the 8 weighs 1500K with me and race fuel in it
The Hamster Racing Mk 2 MX5 is 1100kg in same trim.

For hills and sprints that hurts. Long track/circuit got em beat all the way, but in our short tight stuff the 8 is just too big, too long wheelbase, too heavy.
BUT its loads of fun and handles a wee bit better.
