I bought a set of hydralic scales and was wondering about a computer download that would automatically calculate percents for me.I have a computer in the garage and I could use it. Thanks p.s. I do know the math to do it,but it would be one less thing to do and more time to think about the set up.

I created a spreadsheet for doing this when I bought grain scales, this may help. Pretty basic but just plug your wheel weights in and you're done.

The advantage of doing your own spreadsheet, as opposed to using the calculator in the tool box, is that you can create an archive. It would be best to put as much information as on the speadsheet - ie. spring rates, wheel offsets, ride heights, caster, camber, stagger, etc. as well as how well it did at the track. So, if you find a setup that works, you should be able to repeat it.
