Although this weight difference is not only due to the chassis alone but it is the largest component of the savings. My rough calculation also assumed a nearly complete CF chassis, which clearly is not the case here with the 7 series either. These errors/approximations are both consistent with the <300 lb actual achievement.

7 series info here on CF chassis.
Hey bud, great to have you back .
