Frustratedracer should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
How does the side to side weight balance affect a race car?

Can someone who knows their onions or who has previous experience help me with this please?

Scenario: FWD car racing in one make championship on a variety of UK clockwise circuits.
Regs allow for either RHD or LHD cars and within those regs it is impossible to get perfect weight distribution where both sides of the car weigh the same.
So, both cars are corner weighted to be equal across the front axle and the rears are different.
LHD car is 20kg heavier on the left (left rear)
RHD car is 40kg heavier on the right (right rear)

Leaving aside any pros or cons as to getting used to driving a LHD car, which one makes the better race car?
