Wrong! At 50.38% front weight it only made a 0.45% difference in weight distribution! Moving the battery makes a bigger difference.
Next, we moved the engine 6.5″ forward. This is about where it was in FD legal configuration. You would think this would be a huge difference.
Nope, We now only have a 50.81% front-weight bias! Setting the engine back 6.5″ took quite a bit of expense and fabrication to only improve the weight distribution by 0.88%. You might even do a little bit better with battery relocation!
So now we wanted to see what effect just adding some weight might do. We pushed the engine back to its original position and plopped the 38 lb turbo right here. In real life, it is actually back a few more inches but we just wanted to see.
So this made the car have 50.78% weight on the front wheels. This is a 0.75 percent difference just from the weight of the turbo. So putting the turbo in position made about the same difference as moving the engine 6.5″!
