Its an aluminum block and I have a fiberglass hood but still retain the AC. 54% of the weight is on the front end. I am really just learning to autocross and have been spending time dialing out some of the tight understeer with springs and sway bars. Its getting there but I am not the best person to opine on the weight distribution. The car has a full Griggs GR40 suspension and was built for road course duties. On the road course I set it neutral to mild understeer and like it. I have been learning for over 20 years and the car is still much faster than I am.
