I found C25XE as 176 kgs (without ancillaries) .. so 180 kgs of prediction wont be wrong for spring rates..

36kgs for the gearbox seems a bit light though, i would have though it heavier.

compared to ar25 or ar30 yes.. they are light.. but if you carry them alone not that light ;D
 
when I first time carry ar25(me and someone) I thought its over 150 kgs ;D  but actually its around 80 kgs but you feel its  bloody heavy :o

no, that's about right - they're surprisingly light.

the best advantage of manual is that your car is not applying half clutch while accelerating (till 80 kms/hr) ;D   :D

i think i understand what your saying, yes you are right. and in the kit car its important to get the power straight down.

i think my target gross weight of 650kgs for the car is achievable

yep.. personally I can recommend to use this T6 alum as much as possible
its an aluminium alloy with zinc,magnesium, copper, iron,chromium and titanium..
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7075_aluminium_alloy .
 
its strength is close to steel
 
density 2.8 gr/cm3 where as iron has 7.87 g/cm3
 
and price not that steep.. :y
 
ps: can be found in all useful size and shapes..
