How far back did we have to slide the engine to get that optimum rigidity? Far enough that it’s technically a Front-Mid-engine (FMR) muscle car now! Theoretically that will translate into huge handling benefits, since moving the weight nearer to the center of the chassis spreads it more equally to all tires, which, in turn, reduces the rotational moment of inertia. This enables the chassis to more quickly respond to driver input and should increase stability and traction while turning, braking, and accelerating.
