AJ: I just finished doing some work on the car, had to rebuild the nose after an "off" at VIR in March. I'll update your splitter thread with some pics later this evening...
My car corner weights as it sits right now with me in it... ~4gal fuel in the 15gal cell. Race ready w/ coolsuit and gear (helmet,etc.) will be a bit higher. 147lbs lead ballast added underneath R passenger seating area. With my weight my maximum numbers are 359rqtq and 340rwhp. Last dyno March VIR was 339 rwhp and 356 torque. I had to make a restrictor plate w/ 1.250" holes to get the engine down to these numbers..
LF 890 RF 868
LR 750 RR 729
Total weight 3237
Left side 1639
Rt side 1596
Front 1757 ~54%
Rear 1478 ~46%
I had to raise the RR coilover 1/4" to get crossweights to 50%... Swapped the front springs to 525 each side, and fabbed up solid swaybar linkages. Looking forward to hyperfest! Hope you can make it.
Oh yeah, the tech... Per AI rules you can only set the engine back 1", which has pretty minimal effect on the weight balance. Something like 0.7% I think I read on the C-C site. I did it, and has to cut the same 1" off my aluminum DS ($100) and change the exhaust a bit since I have a side exit exhaust. Had to "modify" the firewall a bit w/ a BFH to clear the passenger LT headers. If I had to do it again I absolutely would not use LT headers, they're a PITA and they hang down lower than anything else under the car. I hit them on the curbs sometimes...
