Need to know if there are standard percentages on the scaling of a pure stock race car. Have a 78 monte carlo, 3540 lbs. total weight. Have homemade scales to weigh each tire, but don't know best percentages for 3/8 oval dirt track.

If your home track does not have maxinum left side and cross weight rules then I would go to and go to the CHASSIS SET-UP IN SHOP page. There is percentage starting points for pure stock. I also run a '78 monte in a boomer class with 53% left side weight and 51% cross. These are tech maxinums in this class and the car Weighs 3465lbs.

Good luck!
