I have a battery in my trunk and can put it on the right or left. If the track is wet you want it on the left and if the track is dry you want it on the right, correct? What about springs, heavy on the left and light on the right or do you swap those to different track conditions also? Thanks.

It's easier to just keep your battery in one spot, you can use lead or another ballast to get the weight where you need it. Our battery is on the left and it stays there.

If you can't work em in close & git em in your face with their orange landing gear down, don't bother taking the safety off......

it all depends on the setup and how the driver likes it i would put it on the left and leave it there. no matter what the condition with rules like we run you need that weight to get the left and cross weight where it should be .you shouldn't realy change much with a tacky track when it's tacky there is plenty of bite in the track so you don't need to add it to the car dryslick thats another story. basic rule of thumb spring wise heavier spring on the left tighens the car up heavier on the right will loosen you up.
