Engine off set

(1/2) > >>

Saw CSX 7079 at SPA in 2018 and was wondering about the engine position. Seems that it is a bit off set. Any ideas why?

A big larger

85 views and no idea?

The differential is centered in cars but the pinion is offset so the driveshaft is also offset to join the pinion. In many cars the drive shaft is long enough to allow that offset to be made up along the driveshaft with the u-joints. With Cobras short driveshaft the engine has to be slightly offset to align with the differential. The offset is just more noticeable with the Webers. I can post photos of a leaf spring Cobra that shows the offset.   

Notice the air cleaner offset.
