Does anyone run right rear weight and if so why?
How does it effect entry and exit?
How does your driving style change with this setup.
Just curious.

I do so I can get the weight to transfer from the left front to the right rear. I had a problem with this a while back and found that my left front was heavier than my RR, mostly because of my weight. We countered that and put 100 lbs of lead over on the RR to make the car roll better, made a huge improvement. It also brought my left side percentage down so it would help it roll, but it also bit better because not as much weight had to transfer to the rr that way.

I have ran about 100# on the right before also. My problem was about the same as Jammin's. When i got the car set up with everything ok 57% rear, 50.5% lf, 125# of wegde, when when I got in the car the wedge went to 205#. The problem was noticed at the track, the car got tight turning in. So when we added the weight and rescaled he car with me sitting in it, we could see where to add the lead and so thats what we did. also i dont think when you scale a car it sould be full of fuel. Is the car full after you run 30 laps? I want to know were the car will be at the end, not at the begining. just my thoughts. ltr good luck spde
