Any ideas to getting the rear % up in a metric car. We have a 15lb bumper engine set back as far as we can without cutting for fuel pump clearance. We cut as much out as possible in the front min wieght is 3200 we are 3330 already with 200lb added to the rear. any ideas thanks

ahhh **** just add more weight everyone else does and doesnt seem to car how the car now drives like a tank. Now Really Rear precentage isnt that big of a deal. When this guys scale there car they are take a 2 demisonary tool to a 3D problem. take what ever weight you have off. get it light. and move your battery around move your seat as far back as you can get it. You dont see any late model guys with anymore weight then they need to at the end of a race. They just build there cars right to begin with.
