This is what happens when you do substantial weight reduction and do not alter the suspension.

LOL. Looks like you filled the cabin and trunk with helium.

Yeah, it sucked. It also caused too many broken axles.

I can understand the front being lifted when you pull the engine. What did you remove to raise the rear end?

That and what ~50% of the engine sits behind the front wheels? There's a reason this car has 50/50 weight distribution.

That adds on to it but not so much. 250-300lb at a 1/10th of the way between the wheels is pretty much all on the front wheels.

I say that because I've seen Miata sitting with engine and transmission out. Rear lift wasn't THAT much. Front was sky high.

Talking about my car? If I tried to explain every detail of how I reduced weight, we would be here all day. An ounce or two here, a pound or so there, next thing I knew I had the high water look going.

It is not something that I did in a few days. It was a constant project that took years. I still retained a stock appearing interior (seats, carpet, steering wheel, doors and dash). It was all under the skin. A lot of folks were left scratching their heads at the dragstrip.
