I run 53% left side, 53% rear and 51% cross for a 3/8 mile, high banked track. your track may be different, but it sounds like a good starting spot to me.

with a sway bar how close do you want the weight on the two front wheels??

Throw your sway bar in the scrap pile, you're better off without one.

depends on stock car or hobby.

we've found that you don't need rear % on tacky tracks and get as much as you can on dry ones. problem is on a hobby staying as light as possible for tacky and weighing more for dry.

stock cars aren't quite as touchy with bigger motors and the advantage of tagging lead on were needed

we run our hobby 2750, 53 left side, 50.5 cross and 49.5 with little fuel. usually tag on gas and screw with tire pressure for track grip.

forgot cross % is usually by driver preference
