A new feature has been added that provides a PC based real-time graphical display of your cars weight & CG. This allows you to add, remove or reposition weights on your car and instantly see the effect on the car's CG position. This design can be found at: http://billvsderbytimers.weebly.com/pin ... scale.html
. Check it out.

I think this is interesting and would be something to have for someone teaching how to build a car for speed. I would then have a car that had a CG of 3/4" in front of the rear axle slot. Here's my thought. The car shown cannot move weight around to get a more aggressive CG. The builder would learn the shape of the car needs to be such that an aggressive design needs to be chosen at the very beginning.
