When setting rear % in your car, especially for dry slick, do you set it with or without driver? Just trying to figure out a problem. Thanks.

We always scaled without the driver, most setup sheets i have seen are based on no driver. You can do it either way but just be consistent once you find something that works.

it's a 4bar / z link. Really tight all the way through the corners.

What are you at now? I would think somewhere around 58 or so without driver should get you in the ballpark.

Well, I'm at 57% after the feature. I couldn't tell you what it is w/ 20gal fuel, cause the owner prefers to buy it at the track the following week. Guess it's like setting your car up for the end of the race, not the beginning. Make sense?
