That's about right.  My car was weighed at the the Btirish V8 convention in 2007 and the numbers were closer to 60% on the front wheels.  With AC but with tube headers and no cats.  

With no posi I have trouble hooking up on wet roads.  I accelerate better in third gear than in second.   Limited slip will help, I'm sure but with a stock 3.5 putting out a measly 170 lb-ft of torque is a different animal than an LX with (??? 400 lb-ft?) and even with posi it will take a lot of practice to put that down in an orderly manner.
