I am curius to what a ky single seater's bias is. I am considering putting the ecotec in one if I can get the weight ratio close. Or is that a big secret?


I was trying to get that answer myself in another thread before I found this one. I want to know the point where the front is too heavy & is unloading the rear tires.

I was told that if you jack it up high enough for the tires to be off the ground and sit the torsions housing on jack stands and get in the buggy it should be close to balanced,,,but I never tried it. I am curious too :?
