Thank you for your prior posts, but I know how to calculate it. I just dont have the scales or a complete car to measure from. I was hoping someone had some numbers to give me.

Electronic scale weight of my 75 '02A without spare tire, driver, and only 1 gal. fuel. You should be able to come up with the CG by using a weight to length ratio:

Left front 707# (29.7% of total)

RF 686# (28.7% " " ) Front 58.4%

LR 503# (21.1%

RR 484# (20.3% Rear 41.4%

Total weight: 2378#

Use: Front weight divided by total weight = distance from front wheels to CG divided by distance between front and rear wheels. Should be close horizontally.

I don't know how to determine the vertical distance from ground to CG.

i might end up getting the numbers from that burgundy race car. I will corner weight it. The way I will get the height if the CG is to weigh it at a known angle, then from there it is advanced geometry.

Hey are we meeting up for breakfast?

To determine the COG in 3 dimensions, you must weigh the car with 4 wheels level, then raise the front wheels (with scales under them) and note how much weight transfers to the back ones. I have the mathematical formulas at home in a book. I'll post them tonite.
