the numbers on my car now are 51% rear, 53.2% left, and 50.2% cross. What effect does raising and lowering cross weight and left side weight have on handling.

Adding left side weight will loosen the car on entry & help it to keep turning at the center then help tighten it off the corner.
Crossweight or wedge will loosen the car on entry because it helps to take weight off the R.R.& lets the rear set out on entry.
When the car gets to the middle of the corner & you are on the gas the crossweight
will stick the left rear harder & tighten the car back up so you can drive harder off the corner.The amount of C.W.depends on the track condition & the amount of rear stagger you run for that track.When adding C.W.to help the car hook up from the center
on out the car will get looser on entry.If the car is to loose on entry then use a stronger spring on the left front & it will tighten back up on entry.You can use panhard bar angles to help entry also & you can raise some weight up heigher also.
