maybe its not such a bad idea, i mean what if you had just an amount of weight to equal to weight of the front end...? so you had the same amount of weight over both axles. perhaps this would allow it to track better...?

IDK tho, I have never owned a car or a FWD vehicle for that matter! lol

Weight in the trunk of a FWD car will just make it worse. It cantilevers weight off the front, makes the wheels have to drag more weight, and adds to the momentum to stop and steer.

Definitely get a video camera ready.
