No it won't, stand on your bathroom scale with one foot and see how much thinner you are! The only thing that will throw as scale off is not being level. If you do lose weight by shifting the load on the balance plate assume your scale is crap anyway. Saulters are a very well recommended kitchen scale.You can argue with me if you like but I did spend 3 years working in a calibration lab, for NASA.

Need some help. My car comes in at 1473. Tonight is the first time running it this light. The car pushes so bad. I've moved battery all the way foward. Also went to black springs. I'm running 30 wt oil in front. Any tips on getting it not to push so bad

Why are you still running black springs ?

Did you ever post your setup sheet ? Seems everyone having success and enjoyment with the car are all very close in setup. I can post my updated one tomorrow if it helps.

I ran the white springs all the way around at first. It pushed even more. I'm running the Ryan mayfield setup since it's the same track. Only difference is shock set up. 2x1.6 pistons front oil 30w. Rear oil 27.5 with black springs all around.

Front arms are flat with b5 tower along with b5 rear arms as well.

If you can post your that would be great man I appreciate the help.

try going stiffer all around. youd be surprised to find that a stiffer front spring can make the car react a bit quicker as the front will not dump over as far. for a while I was running gray fronts and blue rears on my xfactory! Yes I know different car.... same theory.
