This calculator is designed for Otto or "4-cycle" internal combustion engines and works out BMEP (or brake mean effective pressure)... no guarantees (again) but it seems to work.

Question - why does my stove-hot FWD car lift its rear wheel when I hammer a turn, yet my mate's old Alfa sits flat and go
Robert's Simple Weight Transfer calculator 
Works for anything with 4 wheels!
For example, an '82 Alfa Romeo GTV Tipo 116 is cornering at 0.85 g.Assuming its track width is 1600 mm, height of CG is 500 mm and it weighs 1250 kg with a 70kg driver, then we can calculTherefore you can see the outside wheel has far more influence on handling than the inside wheel. This explains why we'

ate the weight transfer is 332 kg.prefer unequal length non-parallel double wishbones, because it has the least camber change on the outside wheel. Camber cUse G-meter or take a guess! Mostly from 0.7 to 0.85, sedans to sports cars on radialsLook up your spec sheet!Another guesstimate, but get a tape measure and go to height of engine, then come down 2/3rds height of engine, give or takeLook up your spec sheet!
