im new to the mail in racing and have a quick question
i live at about 2500 ft elevation and was wondering if I made a car that weighs say 50 grams here at 2500’ elevation would it weigh the same at say sea level or say at Denver?
Don't sweat it. It shouldn't matter. An item's weight doesn't change...if it weighs 45g on your scale at your elevation, it'll weigh the same elsewhere. I think to make a significant impact on perceived weight, you'd have to be like super high in the stratosphere.
If you took a 250 pound man to the moon, he's still 250 pounds, just the gravity impact is less. Takes a lot of distance away from the earth to change gravity.
