I have to agree on the performance. Both my 3 and 4 seem to have a bit 
more between 2 and 3k than the 6. The 6 doesnt seem to get it on until 
about 3200 or so.

The 3 is an 87MM engine. Both the 4 and 6 are stock.

I use the same gas (premium without alcohol). All have Bell exhaust 
systems, SU carbs, stock ignition.

As far as the hop in the 6, I have never noticed it. Did your 6 have a 
stock rear suspension?

It does squat a bit on hard acceleration.

As far as light rear ends, my 63 4 seems to be the lightest.
