dont know if its right or not but I run

53 left
56 rear to start night and 58-60 for dry.
53 cross was loose off 57 cross was tight when not on the gas.

with 53 cross I had 230 lr, lf\rf even

with 57 I had 265 lr and the rf 100 heavier

Im at 55 cross now with the rf 60 heavier and 240 lr, this set up is really close to the another time when it worked pretty good.

all my scale numbers are minus driver total car wt is 3000 on scales.

HOw did you get the rear% so high and still have a 3000# weight? Mine is a coil car (ford) and is 400# over weight just to get 53-54% rear.

I would be interested to know how you got the rear % so high, as well. My Camaro is 3110# w/o driver & ballast, and 3400# race-ready. Even with 60# ballast on LR, the rear weight is about 49%. Left is 53%, cross is 48-51%. I think we would have to add another 200# to get to 54% rear, and all scaling is done with driver weight in car.

How long is the wheel base? Just wanted to know if you slide the car through the turn with that high of cross %
