To find the CW%, you need to weigh each corner of the car.whats a good crossweight percentage and how do you find the percentage?
Like I said before, it's tough for someone to say "this" is what you should run.yes thank you, I did find a crossweight caculator, Here is what i have at the moment, what your thoughts
totall weight -34.7
totall left side - 21.6
left side % - 62
rear totall% -55
diagonal % - 46
This is why I hate to suggest a particular number, as opposed toOnly "rule of thumb" that I've noticed that works consistently is to have about 100grams on the RF in a 1cell car.
This is correct for a banked track.If you happen to own an Iphone there's a handy app for calculating weights and percentages does ozs and grams, just search Cross Weight in Apps.
I,ve found that weights and percentages are handy for getting Your car back to a known baseline after repairs/Ill advised set up changes. Comparing tire weights and percentages to others cars usually just confuses the issue.
After saying that almost every type of oval car I,ve ever ran I start out here:
56-60% left side weight
53-58% rear weight
50-52% left rear to right front ( diagonal )
acording to what you have here, i am right in the ball park if the calculation of mine are correct from the calculator that i used... All of this was a curiosity of mine, i really dont set a car up using these formulas but i was curious as to what mine are and how they compair to others.This is correct for a banked track.
Flat track I found this to be true.
60%-64% left side weight%
43-55% rear weight%
I,ll be up your way racing this summer I Gaarrrenteeee!!! LOLMeeeeeeeeee toooooooooooo! I am not even in Left field yet with the whole carpet thang! When is spring coming????
