Weight disribution stock is nearly 50/50. All I would have to do is take 250lbs off the noise and move it to the back and its a perfect 50/50 balance. Now stock the SC weighs 3860lbs with a full tank of gas without me in it. This car weighed in at 3200lbs race weight with driver so I am thinking with the 460 in it the totall weight will go up a few hundred pounds probably. Plus the fuel cell that was put in is behind the rear wheels so that should keep the rear planted somewhat.
Guys you seem to have forgotten the SC handles nothing like a mustang. For my first two years autocrossing I raced my 35th anny SC with a race weight of 4000lbs and would finish in the top three at every event I would particapate with the car and its got 196k miles on the suspenssion. I can keep up with my buddy's Cobra, beat GTOs, Mach1s, hang with Z06s. I ran on 225/50/16 Hoosier autocross compound tires that I baught 3 years old used and they had half their life left in them. It was a blast running it and only making 219rwhp and 337rwtq but it lacked upper end power. Now I have a different car and an entirely different engine combo. I think it will be rough around the edges at first but mid season I think it will come to.
