Newbie question about foci...

New member here. Is it true that the 4 door sedan weighs just a few pounds more than the ZX3? I've been looking into making a focus autocross car, and have seen several sedans selling for way way below the price for most of the ZX's. If it is true, I could save myself a few hundred bux and only add a few pounds.
Anyway, thanks in advance.

Yes they are close in weight. They have the same wheelbase. Not sure on the specific weight but I think I heard like 16 pounds difference one time not sure though. The main thing being more glass and motors for the windows if equipped. But they are still very close.
