What's the weight distribution front to rear on our cars? I was thinking about mving my battery to the trunk, how much difference would that make? Thanks.

64 front and 36 in the rear, I don't think putting a battery in the back will make much of a difference, now if it were a rear drive car that would help.

Well, a battery weighs what, 50lbs? That's a net 100 lb shift from front to rear, it should bake some difference.

he would want more weight going to the back because if i'm not mistaken a perfect 50/50 weight disribution(Miata has it) it would improve dramatically the handling of the car.

I was thinking more about racing the car and not handling, ok cool.
