What weight percentages should I try to obtain when I'm scaling my car? (I plan on scaling it tonight)Front, rear and cross? I've only driven the car once and it had a bad push. I've got 1200 rf, 1000 lf, stock rears. I've ordered 250 lr and 200 rr. I know the stock lr is really weak and that may have caused my push. The car is 72 monte weighing 3300 w/ 3200 min rule, running on a 1/4 mile clay, medium bank, dry/slick. Had 2" stagger on front, 0" on rear. I'm new at this and could use some help. Thanks!

well im no expert but i would try for 53-54 left side and maybe 53 rear and 50 cross. just try that to start also go to toolbox at the top of the screen and click on revearse scaling and that will tell you how much per wheel. its pretty slick good luck.

my 77 monte is about as stripped as it can get. with no lead it only carries 49% rear at 3250#. plus its shortened to 108". depending on how close to stock your car is you may only see 46-47%.
