I'm new to the forum, and found your Tr6 in the photo gallery and then followed the link on one of the captions in the gallery to this thread. I see no one answer your question about a "resto-mod." Basically a resto-mod is a car that looks stock on the outside, but has been hot rodded under the skin.

I was curious about how your weight distribution is. I read through this thread, but did not find any mention of having the car weighed. Since the engine is aluminum, and the t-56 is close to the center of the car with the battery moved to the trunk, I would expect a big improvement compared with the original Tr6 specs. Have you weighed it yet?

I believe with a full tank of fuel at 19 gallons it was 2656 lbs with a 49/51 weight front to back.

That 49/51 sounds perfect to me, Calvin!
