M20 02 corner weights (fyi)

Very interesting - that's 1003kg's for you metric fans.

Only comparison I can think of is Moe's s14 powered m2 track car. Similar in as much as it has CF bonnet and boot lid and no sound proofing. Weight without driver, but don't know what fuel was on board, was 2150lbs/975kgs. Unfortunately no corner weights.

yeah - except that car weighed over 200kgs more (if you're talking about the Paul Cain car). You could always put a sack of spuds in the boot ;-)

Here's a point of comparison, 71 2002 with 6 point cage, all steel panels, no side glass, gutted doors, no interior, 2 seats and partial dash, s/r tray removed, sidedraft m10 with c/r 5 speed, front coilovers, lightweight wheels, still street legal with lights, 1/3 tank of gas, battery in trunk, 2037 pounds, 56/44 split. Didn't seem to matter what we did, front weight was roughly 56% of total. Wondering if rear coilovers would help or not ?

That's quite light. How do you think rear coilovers would effect? You can't move weight distribution from front to rear with coilovers.

Well - except if they are very heavy :-)

Racing is Life - everything before and after is just waiting!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
