Iam wondering what the usual weight percentages are for late models. Like rear weight and left side weight. And what people feel that would be the ideal percentages. Iam with a chassis shop in Oklahoma, and the local track has done away with one class, and is bringing in Late Models. We are wanting to build and sell our own late models right along with our modifieds and factory stocks. I just need some numbers to get started in the design process.

most latemodels run around 54-55 % rear and anywhere from 51-54% left depending on the track
