Corner Weights

I have only seen one other post here where someone shared their corner weight results, so I thoght I would add to the data base for future reference:

LF = 652 // RF = 648

LR= 817 // RR = 819

Total weight = 2936 lb
Front = 44.3%
Rear = 55.7%

This is a 2002 Boxster S. Measurements taken at Franz Blam Racing with 150 lb driver, and just under 1/4 tank fuel.

As far as weight differences from stock, I have a few puts and takes:
Fabspeed exhaust, no spare tire in front, removed Bose speaker box behind driver, removed the heavy carpet mat over the engine access panel, but added B-K roll bar, limited slip diff, and 3 qt Accusump.

The total weight is about what I expected, but the front to rear bias was a surprise to me. All other data I had see showed a front : rear ratio of about 47% F / 53% rear. It seems other data I have seen must have been taken with higher fuel loads.

Very even left/right! Corner balanced I guess?

And probably a spare tire, which is at least 1/2% right there.

I think most alignment spec's assume a full tank of fuel.
