Help with weight distribution
« on: August 08, 2015, 07:09:19 PM »
My mini keeps hitting wall number 3 at the track. It's not weighted properly and I know I need to add weight to it in areas. It's a 76 Mustang II and I cut a LOT out of it, maybe too much in some areas.  This is what I have with a total weight of 2,415 pounds with me in it.

LF                                            RF
737                                         649
53.9                 50.3

LR                                           RR
563                                         462
                        42.5

Can anyone tell me where weight needs to be added and how much, with as little as possible? I have a bunch of lead, so can melt it down into blocks.

Thanks,

Dianne
