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.
Look, you said that weight distribution matters, particularly in the RS5. That was an indication that you think the M3 handles better than the RS5, but as I've pointed out, the M3 is a bit quicker in a straight line, yet loses out on a road course to the Audi.

Meaning of course that weight distribution in this case doesn't seem to matter.

In other cases, it may or not matter, but it certainly doesn't intrinsically matter, as there are a bunch of other variables involved in the overall performance of any given car.
