And when you add to your list for example FMIC it will go back again.
Yeah, I already have an upgraded FMIC... and my exhaust pipe probably takes more weight off the back than the front. So I'm probably already relatively front-heavy.

There's always the cheap/easy way to test the hypothesis... we could just pack the trunk with 170 lbs worth of stuff and see what that does for handling. Of course, that's not a permanent solution, but at least it'll tell us what 50:50 feels like.
