im pretty sure i read on here that 45/55 was best for max grip.. something to do with the fact that ferrari did many years of research and developement on w/d... anyone have an article? or anything that proves this?morefaster said:I own both...ae86 is muuuuuuuch easier to drive fast on the twisties...mki is excitingly frightening when things get slippy, but not seriously so
even in high speed sweepers like the 405-605 interchange in Los Angeles is easy to take at 100+ with 4 wheel drift in the ae86 but is hard to really get that fully balanced feel in the mki...remember too that the ae86 is fully 50/50 wherease the mki is like 45/55 or something
now if the mki had a longitudinally mounted engine and transmission it might be another story
anywere from 48/52 to about 45/55(mabye more but not sure), i asked a guy who had worked on the Honda Indy team, he said Ovals where your not braking as flat out or accelerating as instantly about 48/52 works best because you can get a really good polar moment inertia(thing), weras when your braking really hard and then accelerating out of a corner really hard 45(-)/55(+) is better, if all you had to do was accelerate and brake really hard than even more weight on the back would make senceMistertuned2 said:offtopic, just out of curiosity whats the weight distribution of f1 cars?
A closely guarded secret. A few years back, when they were lifted off the track, they were always tail heavy. Last couple of years, they became basically horizontal, and now most are nose heavy. The Speed TV commentators mention this almost every race.Mistertuned2 said:offtopic, just out of curiosity whats the weight distribution of f1 cars?
