didn't realize it was that much of a problem just give it a couple years and imca will have the new body styles on the metric chassis like we do now in wc then you may see some change

Right now you can only go back about 1 to 1 1/2 inches. Niehouse checks that now.

Dan if you move just three pounds off the each front wheels and add it to the rear you will gain 1 percent in the rear. I don't know how much you have to move the body but three pounds 6 total wouldn't take much.

zero you are correct.
I was using my scale spreadsheet that divides by 4 so its actually 24 pounds not 6.
But my statement is still true doesnt take much to effect the front to rear weight.
Dan the spread sheet I made is posted on my web page. I made it up to use with the scales from the tool section here.
You can move weight around see the effects.
And yes total weight would have an effect.
the lighter the car the more weight tha would have to be moved to see the effects.
Try my spreadsheet out here. http://www.rcracing-team.com/scales.htm

No problem, we both seem to like to share the stuff we use.

Hey look at the lap page and see if the formating is right. I think when ever you record a lap time faster than your goal its supposed to show bolded red on your lap listings. I don't think its working but I can fix it pretty easily.

Let me know if you want me to or if you've got it covered either way.

Michael.
