lots of variables coming into play on that question. If if we're talking about a stock 'vette it would depend a lot on the model year, engine, and fuel in the tank.

You looking for just front/rear center or height and side-to-side as well? You can get an idea of front/rear center by looking at the front/rear weight distribution that some guys have posted.

to get an accurate measure I think you'll need to get your corner weights...

Does this make any sense:

Center of Gravity Formulas
» Center of Gravity Location (behind front wheels) = Rear Wheel Weights / Overall Weight x Wheelbase
» Center of Gravity Location (off-center to heavy side) = Track / 2 - [ Weight on Light Side / Overall Weight ] x Track
» Center of Gravity Height = [ Level Wheelbase x Raised Wheelbase x Added Weight on Scale / Distance Raised ] x Overall Weight

Best "DIY way" to figure out is to put 2 jacks on each side of the car until you can move the car by pushing down on the nose or the rear with your hand
