I made a change to my rear percentage on my olds metric. I went from 48 to 50.5 same cross and left side and total set up. What can I expext from this change other than less wheel spin, that is why I made the change. I took off around 75 pounds from between wheels and added balast far to the rear. Overall weight change was like a 8 lb decress(I think, I dont have the numbers in front of me) What other effects will this change have. Car was loose coming off of the corner. Any thoughts.

should be a little tighter going in and coming off. More rear weight generally tightens a car up. If you have ever been to
the dirtworks webpage and looked at their
section they have a nifty little chart that
tells what most changes will do to your race
car. i think it is dirtworksracecars.com
hope that helps

Thanks. That is what the car needs. I will check out that web site and see, sounds like another good one. Thanks again for the help.
