Here are my numbers for 79 weighs 3090 lbs with me in it. Mostly stock except for light racing seats, but added back the weight with a half roll cage.

61% rear is your problem at roughly .6*3090/2 = 927 lbs. This is never an even split between rear wheels because more weight resides on the drivers side.
1100lbs might be ok, but your getting close and scales typically are more accurate mid range and lose out at the ends of the spectrum.

I say it should work for your car.
