Need help with Camaro setup, dirt, moderate banked, average 3/8's tracks. getting close to finishing and need help and suggestions and percentages and static weights, have run a metric car for 10 years, first time with Camaro. ...............What should I shoot for rear % and crossweight%, also give me ballparks for the static weights of each wheel (how much heavier LR than RR)????................. It looks like I am going to be way too much cross(57%, now during buildup) and to little rear (50% now). I have to order new rear leafs yet, lowering blocks, etc. And right now the LR weighs around 375# more than the RR so I need to move some static weight around and combine that with the lowering blocks to be installed, etc. Anyway, I want some suggestions from CAMARO DRIVERS!! I dont need any metric car help. So if you have built and driven a CAMARO please help. Thanks

I'll try to help;

left side 52%
Rear 52 to 55% if possible
Start with 49% cross and adjust as needed.

Remember, the only way to change left side and rear weight is to phyically move weight (ie. battery,lead etc).

I hope this helps.
