Some things I'd like to point out...

My car:

weighs 2900lbs wet
weighs 1450lbs in the rear
weighs 1450lbs in the front
weighs 725lbs in front right
weighs 725lbs in front left
weighs 725lbs in rear right
weighs 725lbs in rear left

(want scale tickets?)

I don't beliee I've ever had a car so evenly balanced. It's a shame I throw it off by sitting in the front seat.

Doesn't it depend how much fuel you put in it?

Corner balancing should be done with 1/2 tank of fuel and either you sitting in the car or an equivilant weight placed on the driver's seat.

all Porsche testing by the factory, and all published Porsche performance information in the owners manuals is done with 1/2 max load. If you look at the max load, you'll find it's with two people in the car. Just a point of information.
