Forum members simply using their digital smart phones or cameras to take a video of their Mustangs while slowly walking around the car. It doesn't have to be a flashy video production as such - just shoot the video as you walk around your Mustang in a 360 degree circle. If you get background wind or other noises, or if the video is a bit shaky, who cares. Let's see what'cha got!
Having so many brilliant minds here I wanted to open the floor for discussion on the topic of weight distribution.
First of all, what is the approximate weight distribution of our cars? Whatever it is, it is probably far from 50/50.
In theory the lighter the car the fastest it would be able to change directions, thus turn faster.
Although a very generic statement, a 50/50 bias is a "good" goal, maybe a little more rear bias is better, but at least close to 50/50. I understand there are many variables involved here.
The above aspects brings me to a thought. Assuming I can't change weight bias by removing weight, as in our cars unless you change to aluminum block or make some more drastic changes in the front, it would be hard to move the bias to the rear. If you add weight to the rear you can probably come closer to 50/50, but you will be adding weight to the car, which will make it harder to change directions. So the question would be, what is the balance between increasing weight, and changing bias when you can only add weight? As you can see, it is an interesting conundrum so I want to hear your thoughts.
PS: I also understand that there are other options to lighten the front beyond an aluminum block, but I expect the changes would need to be dramatic to make a significant difference in the bias. Yes, you can go to an aluminum intake, remove the A/C compressor and some small change here/and there, but that probably will make too little of an impact, or maybe I am wrong and it would be more important.
