left side weight adds wedge which should tighten the car i believe and right side should loosen the car. overall any weight behind the rear tires should help forward bite though

Left side weight for a tacky track as the track dries and gets slick the left will cause a loose condition, we start with a 50lb weight on the left rear and move it to the right between the heat and feature if the track is drying.

Ego, When you move that weight do you make any other changes?

NO, we have it figured to where the weight is mounted directly over the rearend so the movement is just a leftside weight change. We may make an air pressure change or something small but it is generly fill the fuel cell and move the weight.
