Car Weight And Weight Distribution

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Just though I would throw up some info in regards to car weight and distribution. Though it might be handy for anyone looking for numbers when building a Zed.

 

I just finished a first pass corner weight setup on the car and found out the following...

 

Car Specs:

 

Model : 1972 240Z

Engine : 302 Windsor with Alloy heads, intake and water pump.

Gearbox : Supra 5 Speed Alloy case with steel sandwich plate.

Rear end : R200 with mechanical LSD.

Suspension and Brakes : Full AZC Setup.

Steering : Subaru Power Steering rack and Ford Power steering pump.

Wheels and Tyres : 17*9 3 Piece Rims with 235/45/17 RE011 Bridgestones

Body Mods : Fiberglass Bonnet

Additional stuff : Half cage (welded in), Evo 8MR Seats, Full Carpet Trim, Re-enforced and extended chassis rails, Unknown body work (included small steel flares and no idea how much filler)

 

Results:

 

Cross Weight @ 50%

 

Car Weight (Including half a tank of Fuel and all fluids + Driver) : 1197.5 Kg

Weight Distribution (Driver In) : 51% Front, 49% Rear.

 

Car Weight (Including half a tank of Fuel and all fluids) : 1127.5 Kg

Weight Distribution (Driver Out) : 52% Front, 48% Rear.

 

If anyone wants more info or wants to add with their own, go for it.

 

Cheers

Driver out it looks like it, driver in is more relevant. With yours driver in would show pretty good weight distribution, maybe 48% F 52% R?

Rolled the race car over the scales at PI on the weekend with 25-30l of fuel and heavy battery in the very back as i haven't replaced the Odyssey yet

 

Fr 465kg total 925kg so 50,25/49.75% driver will shift it back a little, but battery will probably go the other way

From memory the 260Z I had with FJ20ET engine and gearbox, R180, driver in, was 48%F, 52% R. Have not checked the 280ZXV8 yet.
