Sedan vs Coupe... whos on a diet?

i was looking at an article on some webite, and it had lots of info on 0-60, 0-100, and 1/4 mile times for stock vehicles.

to my suprise, i saw that the ZTS(my car) had a quicker 1/4 mile than the ZX3. whats up with that? not that im complaining, but having the same motor, i thought that the ZX3 would be a little lighter and therefore have a better 1/4 mile time.

anybody know the weight of the two?

A ZTS has a 2.0 Zetec, unless it's a green state PZEV 2.3 Duratec. An ST has a 2.3 Duratec.

My sisters has the 2.3 dtec and it moves pretty good for an auto. Its an 04 I have a feeling it would keep up with my basically stock 03 zx3 with a zetec and I have a manual trans.

as for weight I think a zx3 is around 2700 and a sedan is around 2900 or something in that range. It probably says somewhere on here I remember reading it actually.
