That, and to change the weight distribution, making the car a little less front-heavy.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by silversx:
what's the purpose of this? to gain room in the engine bay?
From a drag racing standpoint, you're absolutely correct (in reference to FWD cars). But from a road race/autox standpoint (which was what I was referring to), the more evenly balanced car, the better. In that case, front-heavy=not good.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by SERracer01:
Ok you want to make the front heavy. If you want traction more weight= better traction. Thats my 2 cents.</font>
