As part of my SEMA build I was working my way through the Ford Transit Builders Guide & I came across the methods and formulas to figure out the Center of Gravity.
For a road going machine this is less of a concern, but with all the off camber fun we have in the dirt it will be great to know once the build is finished just where that imaginary point is at.
Sure playing on a RTI is fun and looks cool (Ramp Travel Index tells you how much flex your suspension gives), which is little to none a Transit
but knowing how if your Center of Gravity is high vs low or front vs back has much more value to the Overlander or VanLife world.
Looks like Martín our resident engineer will have to be involved with all this math, and we will need to borrow 4 wheel scales and a forklift, but in the end should be a good time and great knowledge to share! This will be a real hassle to do, and I hope a "once and done" type thing for sure.
I did come across some info in researching that some state DOTs will do individual wheel scales (horizontal of course) if you call and ask....that info alone would we worth having.
