Yes it does. Its quite amazing. The car now weights 2800lbs. It did gain some weight with the v8 and big brakes. Weight distribution is unknown, but if we were to guess we would say it has become nose heavy. The car does over steer if you get to aggressive with turn in. However its alot of fun because it can be control with some throttle.
