DIY CORNER WEIGHTING
1 Corner weighting helps with weight distribution at the front and rear of a car. There’s a DIY method, which isn’t as accurate as using scales but has been adequate for many race teams. First, check the tyre pressures and make sure the car is on level ground. Look for a jacking point around the centre of the front and rear underside.
2 With the front or back of the car safely raised, measure the ground clearance at the opposite corners. Compare these two figures to help determine the car’s corner weighting. If the suspension ride height can be adjusted (e.g. coil spring height or adjustable trumpets), the ground clearance can be altered to help move the weight distribution.
