The following is an extremely useful post by member jagamajajaran (Jeremy):

If you find yourself trailering your 8th Gen Corvette for some reason, the center of balance is a key safety factor. The graphic I've included shows the center of balance for the 2020 Corvette, which is quite different from the previous generation. Watch the video for a more detailed analysis and some trailering tips.

P.S. Before you even ask why, I trailered Crushin down to XPEL Dallas after I had completed paint correction and didn't want to pick up any rock chips on the way to Dallas. This trailer is what I will be hauling my 1963 Grand Sport #008 in.

I agree this is very useful information if you are trailering the car. Seems easy to remember that the horizontal component of the center of mass is a few inches ahead of the back edge of the window if you don't have a measuring tape. It also pretty clearly underscores the 40-60 weight distribution. --Bob

It also shows why, if you don't use the correct lift points, the back of the car falls off a lift.
