Default Road and Track Application

I enjoy drag racing just as much as the next guy, but IMHO road races are much more exciting to watch and participate in. The factory GT suspension will let you scare the living hell outta yourself if you are dumb enough (and I was) to drive around with the traction control turned off. Maximum Motorsports makes a kit for road races called the Road and Track Box. There is a cool article linked on their website about a worn 1990 Mustang LX with their Road and Track Box installed in it that enabled the old pony car to tie a Dodge Viper for the 3rd fastest time ever recorded by (as of the year 1998) Motor Trend Magazine.

A few questions:

My Mustang has a solid rear axle. Even with a quality suspension kit, how much will this limit the performance of my car on a legitimate road course where you are not just running through a series of cones on a perfectly flat surface?

Im not sure exactly what the weight distribution of my car is, but I know that when the gas tank nears empty, I have to take it easy accelerating into a corner from a dead stop. What is the factory weight distribution of a 99-04 Mustang GT and what are some remedies to near/achieve 50/50 weight distribution?
