are you scaling the car with the driver in?

If not your numbers are WAY off. Most chassis builder recommend scaling without the driver. 53% LS, 54-60% rear. Rear percent all depends on what type of track you run on and the amount of tire the car has under it. Normally a latemodel runs around 54-56% rear, the smaller the tires the more rear you run to hook the car up.
