Doug personally i prefer more left front in a car(WEIGHT).I also run more left rear but not knowing your're rear suspension it's hard to say.I run a multileaf with about150 lbs.of left rear;but we run on a high bank track at 3/8 mile.Go to the toolbox on this page and punch in your percentages on scaling and play around with some figures.These figures will put you in the ballpark.53 to 55% left, 55 to 56% rear, 49 to 51% cross.

Wheel weight in respect to the opposite side wheel ( ie lf vs rf) have no direct influence on handling. If you get close to the percentages that high voltage mentioned you should be close enough to start with then adjust from there.

IMO, Cross % is a little high and left side a little low. Don't know how much stagger you may have. It may be a little pushy, just hard to tell.

leave the car loose so you can drive it easer the first few times, work on just being smooth, keep the lt rear split low
