well, everyone is so dyno number happy. i thought i would post my corner weight numbers!

specs: 2011 gt turned boss, TD 18x10, h&r race springs and koni yellows, hotchkis UCA and adj panhard, light flywheel and driveshaft, battery relocation kit
conditions: 1/8 tank of gas, 185lb of all american me

weights with driver, since they matter more:

LF: 1053
RF: 953
LR: 902
RR: 870
DIST %: 53.1/46.9
CROSS%: 50.9/49.1
TOTAL: 3778

i have to say, i am really happy to have only a 0.9% cross difference when i have little ability to change it without adjustable height coilovers! and if i had a full tank of gas, i would definitely be in the 52.X% range.

now, to maximize my potential in the TT3 group, with my rwhp, i can be as low as 3700 (after the race). so, i have to figure out how to dump 78lbs...off the front only;)

doing so, takes me to 52.1/47.9 distribution. but thats a very tall order! k-member? steeda rad support? thats maybe 20lbs?

Here is the info on rad support. I made this change when I made a radiator change:

Steeda Mustang Lightweight Radiator Support 555-5080 $200
Stock part 21 lbs, Steeda part 7 lbs, 14 lb reduction.

Didn't expect that kind of weight savings! That's great bang for the buck! Any issues or compromises with it?

No issues. My mechanic that did the work had a few hose issues with the new rad but not with the support. Other than that the install went well and no issues since then.
