That's because there is no handling benefit to a 60/40 (front/rear) distribution. IMO, this type of distribution is mostly a consequence of optimizing the "packaging" rather than the handling.

IIRC, swamp is also implying that a 40/60 (front/rear) is optimal, I don't recal he ever stated that front heavy cars handle better...

I can't comment on which is the "optimal" weight disrtibution. All I am saying is that rear weight bias makes the car easier to pivot, hence more nimble.
