no one can give me ANY more pros or cons of having high left side percentage? I race on 1/4 high bank and 1/4 medium bank tracks that go real black slick

I race 1/4's and a 1/5. I would never run that high no matter how slick

im not sure if it is right or wrong but i will tell you we ran 53.5 most of the year in our metric chassis, but couldnt get the forward bite we needed. so i was on here and someone was talking about left side weight and we decided to try moving the balast we had in the car bumped it to 55, and the car got better bumped it to 57 and got a win. we race a 1/2 mile flat race track so gauge your self there but it really helped forward bite

never been on scales so don't know the weights but we moved my 22 gal. cell from just right of center to as far left as we could get and it helped a ton on a fast half with long straights and semi banked turns.
