You'd have yourself a Flintstone Flyer. Use bolt-in lead. You'll probably put almost half of it in the center, the rest you can move around where you need it.

get on a set of scales and add your weight where you need it. you'll more than likely need more tail weight then any where else. and keep in mind that adding weight between the wheels doesn't have as much effect as past the wheels so mount it pretty close to the rear axle since you need to add so much
