I'm looking for somewhere that i can find stats on weight distribution of quite a few different cars. If anyone knows of a site they could link, that would be awesome.

If you want to help dig, here's a list:

BMW E36 M3
Supras from MKII to MKIV
3rd gen Celica
4th gen Celica
5th gen Celica
Fox boxy Mustang (1989-1993 series)
Current Mustang
Infinity G35 Coupe
Lexus IS300

Thanks in advance. :)

why do you want to know this?


This is a variable setup precedure. I can change the weight distrabution of a car with tuning. All you need is a car scale to find out what the weight ditrbution is and adjust accordingly for your purpose.

I'm trying to figure out about what the worst, yet still driveable, and decently performing f/r ratio is for a rwd car...

I'm wanting to at least investigate the possibility of a rwd conversion on the coupe ( I know, i know, space constraints, and other huge issues) but if the weight distribution is going to make it a terrible performer due to traction, or whatever issues, then i won't even bother looking into it...

I've seen that vid of the GT4 RC Grp A with the twin turbo 1uzfe, converted to rwd, and that car just seems useless to me, although highly entertaining. I wouldn't be trying to do it with near as much torque though, which leads me to think that it may possibly not be a problem.

It's more of an idle curiousity thing, right now.
