SET­TING CROSS WEIGHT:

NZ Performance Car - - Weekend Workshop -

Once you’ve com­pleted static- weight per­cent­ages move onto your cross weights

En­sure your sway bars are dis­con­nected from one side to avoid this load­ing up a cor­ner as it will throw off mea­sure­ment

By rais­ing the ride height on any given cor­ner, you are in­creas­ing the weight on that cor­ner and the weight on the cor­ner di­ag­o­nally op­po­site. The other two cor­ners will lose weight as a re­sult

By low­er­ing the ride height on any given cor­ner, you are re­duc­ing the weight on that cor­ner and the weight on the cor­ner di­ag­o­nally op­po­site. The other two cor­ners will in­crease in weight as a re­sult

In­stead of mak­ing large ad­just­ments at any given cor­ner, work your way around the ve­hi­cle mak­ing small changes at a time. This will keep ride height as even as pos­si­ble

Make sure to grab a pen and notepad to doc­u­ment ev­ery change and weight added. This will come in handy if ad­just­ments are needed at the race­track away from the scale set

Con­trol arm an­gles are an­other great way to mea­sure changes made, as pic­tured

Re­mem­ber, any change in tyre pres­sure or ride height will have an ef­fect on cross- weight per­cent­age
