My car rightnow has 53.2% crossweight and about 200lbs of rear bite, with me in car and with 200 lr and 175rr springs. Car seems to handle OK. I tried a different setup and put 200 springs across rear, it changed on scales to 49.8% and 120lbs of rearbite, and my car very loose on this setup. This is in a hobbystock car with 205/75/15 tires. Need help with what is a good crossweight.

crossweight is driver preference. you changed the cross and didn't like it. worked with a couple different drivers in the past and every one likes it different. But less cross (looser) is faster the straighter you keep the car the faster you will be.

Racer98,

Why did you change spring? What was the car doing that you didn't like?
