Default Integy weight distribution system & TMM weights

Hi there guys,

So I have read through the past articles on the forum on this system, however still have a few questions that are unanswered or unsure about.

So the first thing that I want to know is when the car is on the system, do you want to pump the suspension as you would when setting up ride height?

When I have all the calculations done and have the percentage of weight distribution. I have the Much More weights, I know I need to stick them onto the car, but have no idea where or why. Also whast is the heatshrink that comes with the weights meant for?

Finally, what is the ideal setup one is looking for in weight distribution?

Thanks a million in advance.

yes. that best simulates how the car is going to sit after a few corners on the track.

no idea.

there isn't one. on asphalt, a rearward bias seems to work better. on foam carpet, it is the oppostite, as tire temperature is not a concern, and rear grip is abundant.
my question to you is, does your apparent weight on the measured axle change if you move the spring collar up and down on one of the adjacent corners?

Moving the collar wont affect the weight. Why would it?

I believe that it would affect the weight on that particular side of the car, but not the static weight of front to rear. This is how you would tweek a car left to right!

Yeh it'll tweek the car, but it wont affect the weight in any way whatsoever.
