    Wally58 got a reaction from gilltech in 260Z 2+2 Axle Weights   
    He wants the front and rear axle weights off a basically stock car so he can compare both the actual weights as well as percentages to mine. I still have to take my car up to the local weigh bridge and establish its front, and the rear axle weights, as well as the total vehicle weight. From all of that information he can verify that the suspension, Brakes and Mounts etc have the structural integrity and performance to handle the LS1 weight and power. He is hoping the weights are within 5% of stock so the entire process will be easier. If we are outside that limit we will have to do a bit more work. 
    During construction I had the car on the digital scales we used in the past on our race cars routinely. The last time just prior to strip down for painting I had  53% front, 47% rear with 50% x 50% cross weights, but that was prior to completion and with no fluids. If it ends up coming out at that I will be over the moon. Once everything with Rego is sorted I will put it back on the scales and sort out the correct spring rates so I have frequencies of 2.0 and 2.2.  If I find at that time the individual wheel weights have been screwed up. I will have to try and move some weight around to get them right.
