I put my right trailing arm(Harris two-link)in bottom hole and finally got some heat in left rear tire,but now I am bottoming right rear shock out.My right rear tire was still quite a bit hotter,and I think I should put a chunk of lead on right rear to even temperatures out,but I cant do it if I am already bottoming right out,what should I try next?thanks for help.

What kind of weight percentages are we talking about here? Sounds like they may be a little off to me.

57.5 rear,52.5 left,50.0 cross,without driver.

What do these figures mean....its really hard to judge without the driver in the car. But from what you gave me, I would think that you definitely need to add cross in the car to get it to bite. Does it have any forward bite at all? Remember that weight on a tire means friction. Friction means heat. If a tire is hotter than another...make sure you add weight to the cold tire. You want to make them as even as possible, this would mean that you will have an evenly balanced(fast) car.

As you know, Harris scales without driver and I am close enough to the 200 pounds, that I figured these percentages were close.In the heat it was so tight I could not even turn it going in to corner,so I dropped right trailing arm.I must be thinking backwards as far as where to put weight as I am already a little high on left side weight,so I do not know for sure if I want to put more on left.forward bite felt o.k.,but I would like to see rear temps closer.

I think right rear was overly hot,and left was more where the temp should be.

hmm......sounds like you should still be adding wedge into the car, this will reduce the weight on the RR....adding weight will not help you much on this I dont think. Adding weight will just basically manipulate the left side weight, right side weight, or rear weight. Not the cross. The cross has to be manipulated through the weight jacks.
Hope this helps.

Jammin,could you please give me a close starting point as far as percentages.Also I would like to know a starting point for left rear bite,as I have heard anywhere from 20 pounds to 150 pounds.

It is really hard to do that, simply because I do not know what kind of track your running on...Believe it or not, the soil content makes a huge difference also.
Sandier track is gonna need a tighter setup than a gumbo track.

i run a harris 2 link and i run 57% rear and
51.5 cross without driver it dropes to 50.5 with driver what is the position of the left rear lower bar in the middle hole? and a thing i have done when the car is tight is raise air pressures on the rears also think about stagger it sounds like yer running on a heavier track
