Patra_was_here might be using Konis.

I'm using Tokico Illuminas, all rears.  As far as weight balance, I did "the math" vs an MR2...

MR2's (SW20 turbo) weight from 2750, to 3050, with a weight distribution of:
Front axle: 1260 lbs (43%)
Rear axle: 1660 lbs (57%)



I don't remember exactly, but the SQ weight distribution is better at 53:47 I think.  That's about 1600 front, and 1400 rear.  So we are very close to what an MR2 is pushing.
