What chassis has the highest rear percentage? I'm looking for a new car and would like something that weighs 2300 or less with at least 59% rear. Thanks for any input.

eagle chassis seem to have a really high rear percentage. Im not for sure what they are, but they gotta be at least 59.

My newest cars weigh around 2250- 2300 lbs race ready 20 gallons of fuel with 58-60% tail. These numbers do vary depending on all of your bolt on parts over the whole car and engine tranny combo etc. I have references if you want them. All that have a car of mine are happy with them. Richard
