I am looking for some help here.
I am trying to help a guy set up a new hobby stock but i have no experience with them. I have worked on modifieds for a few years but I don't know how much of that translates to hobbies.

Overall what percentages are common to run in a hobby stock. I believe it is an eraly 70'2 nova but i am not sure. We are going to set it on the scales and see what is there to work with but I was hoping to get some help from you guys as to where the car needs to be to work good.

Thanks ahead of time.

50 to 54 % left weight and 50 % cross will give you a start
