equel tweek...
but you should have det same ride hight if the chassis is streght and shocks are equel length left right.
its easy to tjek tweek, just put the chassis on somthing you know is 100 % stregth as a pitboard. and tjek if there if there is a corner of the chassis thats not touching the pitboard.
if so your chassis is tweeked. and then you have lossen all the screws in the topdeck and tighten them again. that should make the chassis stregth.
if the chassis is stregth tjek your shocks an see if they at equel length.

hope it helps
Steven

All that you said is important in making your car balance.

All are important but tweak is absolutely necessary for a good handling car. A little bit off on ride heights and/or L/R balance can still be very good and competitive but if the tweak is off, you're toast.

Try to get the others right too though of course.
