Make your point, please.
I was disagreeing with your post where you say weight distribution is immaterial. I thought that was clear.
Weight distribution definitely matters....there's a huge difference between 40/60 rear biased weight distribution and the 60/40 front bias of the RS5. To say that weight distribution does not matter by comparing a porsche to a RS5 does not make sense.
