Re: V6 weight transfer
The 156 V6 has 52-48 weight distribution out of the shop. More weight over the drive wheels, Ferrari as you said 48-52 over the drive wheels. The old V6's are not as front heavy as most think then. But getting back to the thread, shifting some weight to the rear now seems like going closer to 50-50. Now i am confused.
50-50 weight distribution is nothing more than marketing hype. it's nice to have, yes, but its not the end all, be all of tuning handling. in fact, 50-50 is not a magical number. eg, ferrari seems to prefer 48-52.
