When increasing rear weight should you decrease cross weight? What would be a starting point for the cross weight? Ive got a 3500lbs. Street Stock w/ 55.2 % rear, and 54 % left weight. Had 53.5% rear and moved around some weight to tighten the car up and I went to far. I also adjusted the cross to 51.3% from about 50.8%. The car pushed real bad with this set-up, right into the wall. The old set-up did turn in good, thru the center good, but was a little loose on exit. The track was tacky instead of usually being dry slick. I run a little over 2 of stagger in the back on tacky and straight up for slick. Any help would be appreciated.

Our street stock class is at 3500 lbs min. also. It used to be 3600. Don't let the weight fool you the cars are extremly fast.
