    Default LeMons car

    Everyone who drives my 280-Z LeMons car immediately talks about how "easy it is to drive"

    I had a chance to put it on some scales today and was amazed at the balance.

    2,002 pounds, 1/2 tank gas, no driver

    With 210 pound driver car is 49.9% front, 50.1% rear, 51.2% left side and 48.8% right side

    Spent 6 hours adjusting the set up on my 510 last week and I can't get even close to this balance.

    And yet didn't the 510 have such a great reputation for balance compared with the 240/260/280?

    Well, having an S2000 motor (and worse transmission) did not help my 510 in the balance department. It is 53% front 47% rear and about 5% off side to side. Not horible but not optimum. Can't move anything else around to make it any better and I don't think adding weight would be worth what would be gained.

    I have never seen your 280Z LeMons car, but I bet it couldn't stand up to a BS challenge that it's not a $500 plus safety equipment car.
