I test drive the car last weekend. Have problem cornering. Hope this will solve the problem. Race tomorrow. Got to prepare. First time with this car.

Everyone is on step 2 before they did step one. Weight balance should be done first before you put the car on any type of scale.

There are 2 quick methods: First way is to set droop and ride height with setup wheels installed. You then find the center point on your shock towers (f/r) and then you can suspend the car with string from those points (Schumacher towers already have it marked ). Next you lift the car until the setup wheels release or touch at the same time (must move components around until they do).

Another way is a similar method, but you rule out any suspension by placing a small balancing bubble onto the top-plate and suspend the car. Then move weight around until the bubble is centered.

Only then you can truly tweak a car on scales

I found out the table that I work on is not perfectly flat. I relocate a flat spot to work on and reset the ride heights again from beginning. The measurment is very close. So, I don't think the scale is bad or my car tweak.

LF= 330g -------- RF= 310g
LR= 360g -------- RR= 332g

You still have 52% rear but now it shows 52% left weight percentage. Try adding 28 grams of weight on the right front side. That should put a little more up front and cut the rear percentage down and balance out the L/R percentages. Then when thats good reset the wedge.

Your left side weight is 690g and your left side total is 662g the difference is 28g. Plus most people use tire stick-on weights for balast, and those are 7g each. And twards the front because you said you were having trouble cornering so you want less rear.
