Pick one way or the other driver in or driver out and do it the same all the time. Scaling is just so you have a baseli9ne to go back to. If you do it without the driver everytime and the car works itdoesnt matter what it is with you in it. There is no way to get the % where you want them and then get in and not have them change. You are adding a large amount of weight in the seat and there is no way to keep the % the same whether you are in the car or not.

I used to put 175# of weight in my seat when I was in the garage by myself. That worked pretty good also-almost exactly same readings as when I was setting in car and my buddy taking the readings. Just a thought.

I do that too. I took a bunch of round one and three gallon plactic plant containers, taped over the bottom hole and filled them with concrete. I also bent up some old brass rods I had laying around to use as handles. I made a few extra and coded them all so I could change the weight totals I put in the car. I even put them in to set the front end.
