Pat,

I actually set it up my car with equal front corner weights for better track braking. As you know, in most cases a limited slip is required if doing this.

However, I wonder if balancing the front wheels come close to the effectiveness to actually moving the weight to balance the car.

Using my car as an example. My front weights were close to 593lbs each side.

I still had 170 lbs more on the drivers side that a good percentage of was going to be shifted to the left front wheel under threshold braking.

Guess what front wheel usually broke traction first?


If one can improve polar moment cool. It may just be my opinion but I think our rear tire to weight ratio is a much bigger restraint to going faster.
