It was described as the ultimate tiger and was to use a J75 or J67. This I found in a book by Tommy H. Thomason on the XF8U-3 Crusader III, but nothing else.

I'm curious if anybody has figures such as weight, armament/payload, speed, range, etc...

The Design 110 mission requirements were provided on page 5 of my XF8U-3 monograph. Of course not all the designs met them but I'm pretty sure that the 110-4 design incorporated the armament ones. As explained in the monograph, the desired cycle time was hard to meet. I'll see what else I have.

From what I read, the information did seem to include
  1. Standard Air-to-Air: 2 x AIM-7, 2 x 30mm cannon
  2. Overload Air-to-Air: 4 x AIM-7
  3. Air-to-Ground: Mk.7 nuclear weapon
I'll see what else I have.
Thank you: Also, do you have figures for dimensions?
