Was just thinking about this. Take a Mk6 GTI, empty weight distribution maybe 59/41 - pretty good as is, consider everything is up front.
Now. Realize that all loadings (cargo, passengers, fuel) only help weight distribution.
Running the numbers, for a 3100lb curb weight, for the most optimal case of heavy trunk load (200lb) some heavy passengers in the back, weight distribution goes to around 52/48.
For a typical setup, 200lb driver, 40lbs "junk in the trunk, full fuel load (80lbs), gets balance to around 55/45, pretty close to a lot of FR cars.
True, we wont be tracking a car full of people and cargo, but considering thw primary purpose of this arrangement (practical benefits), its nice to see this added benefit - the car loads the wheels nicely in its most typical usage. Just something to think about next time youre thinking "fwd has crappy weight distribution."
