Does anyone know how to improve the side to side weight distribution of the rotary engine? Obviously it isn't perfect because it isn't symmetrical, and having one or two turbos hanging off one side but not the other will only exagerate the problem. Although this isn't much of a problem for a fun car or a road sports car, for serious racing it could be a problem Sad . Any solutions or suggestions?

I guess I don't understand the problem. Are your cornerweights off? The "balance" of the engine is not remotely important as long as the car itself is balanced.
