There is nothing wrong with sheading some weight on a car so long as you are compensating with a proper corner balance afterwards. Other wise the more weight you remove, the more unbalanced the car is going to become when you hunk it into a corner.

Now maybe doing just a hood is not going to make so much of a difference that it feels out of whack or poor handling, but you start sheading enough you better believe the weight transfer is going to be off because most OEM and aftermarket linear springs are made with a specific car weight in mind to begin with.

^ That's a really technical consideration, I like it. Akoutmos would be a huge fan of that too. Physics is Physics - how far you push it affects how much it affects you, thus how much you care. Not everyone is a track racer, a lot are simply street ricers :hihi:.
