On the MIP station you adjust the preload of hte side that's on the pivoting block. Also, make sure your non-pivoting block is flat by taking the pivoting one w/ the bubble and placing it on top of it. Adjust that until it is level. Always make sure your block is level before you adjust tweak, otherwise you'll never get good/consistent results. Also, place the bubble block at an diagonal on the stationary block and the beam. Make sure the stationary block and the beam are at the same height (bubble is in middle). Then center your car on both blocks. If the rear end of the car is on the pivoting block, adjust the rear shocks and visa versa. The hobby knife trick works, but you have to do it perfectly in order for it to work. The hobby knife thing works much better for 12th scales because of their weight.
