Are the weights you gave ready to race or without driver? A friend of mine just built one that came out at 3200 ready to race with 51% rear and no lead. Its all legal and it isnt over built. The track we race at gets dry real often. Heck my gutted out streetstock is 3000 with fuel, driver and no lead.

the 2600 is without a driver but percentages weren't that great. just wondering what is in the middle and good numbers
just askin r something like these numbers good
?? 2850
rear 50
left 52
cross 51
but whats to much rear, cross and left can be adjusted.

the best ive seen is 2500 and 3/4 fuel no driver and 49 rear
just askin for other peoples experiences

you need to scale the car how it is gonna be raced. with driver and at least 1/2 tanks fuel to start tjhen add as needed if you can't add lead. mine with 22 gallons and me at 200 is 2950 50 rear. with driver and fuel shoot for 50-52 left
51-53 rear
49-52 cross
weight wise i'll give up 300# for the right %'s
