I have a question. Would it be better to have a light car or have a car that had good leftside percentages and rear weight percentages. Or here's another one. Which is more important LS or Rear weight percentages.

Thats what I was thinking. That rear weight would be more benificial than overall weight. If I have to add 200 lbs to get more rear percentage than that would be better than no rear.

Ok well believe me i have tried all that because we run a heavy car and it has all the best equipment on it. You will find unless you are really spinning weight will not help you to go faster believe me. The more weight the more the car will push like a dump truck. Yes weight would be good if we could run the power to break the car loose but we dont. The best thing i can say move your gas tank battery and any other item towards the back and use the weight you have to help your %. Then if you dont like the car just add a 100 lb. to the back and go try it you will see what i mean. Hope this helps but everyone has to find out on there own its just for fun so try both and check times and then you will have your answer. Steve Dupree
