Once it is a set as you say, the polar is probably not a big deal though it can help at autoX if you can make a big enough change.

You are not going to turn a 930 into a 914 or Boxster.

How about this, a 930 is like trying to drive a sledge hammer back wards. It needs a hand at the other end.

Go for it!

The best.
Oh, by all means, the best place is in the passenger cabin, but then you best have a sealed battery and make sure you have one hell of a bracket to hold it in place in the case of a roll over... and what's the point of having a nice fast car if you can't bring someone else out with you to enjoy it....

But now that I think of it more, it may actually be better in the Smug box, after all you are trying to get weight onto that RF tire.... much better to have it behind it than in front of it.
