why do people worry about the lr vs rr wt?

I am set up with 51 cross, and that puts me at 150 heavier on the left rear than the rr. Most guys say 50-100 max, why??

How much rear split(left rear weight over right) you run is a matter of preference. A friend of mine thats leading points right now only runs about 15 pounds. My old 76 monte ran around 180. When I build the metric Im running now I followed everybodys advice and kept the rear split under 100. It never would seem to hook up as well coming out of the corner like my monte did even with 57% rearweight in the metric. Last week I cranked the split up to 180 and it worked much better. Plus I have two 1/4 inch shims that I put under the left rear spring for dryslick features. I might rescale it this week to see what it has with the shims. My advice is try it and see how it works. Run what works for you. sont worry too much about what everybody else is running.

more cross or bite will usually loosen the car in and tighten it off.
