To the point of scaling the car.  car weighs 2708 with driver.  rules require min weight to be 3250. Max left side 55%.  Car is a 78 camaro front clip with built cage and leaf spring rear.  Where is the best place to put 542 pounds of lead. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks Confused

You'll want to get as much on the left side to hit your 55% limit, other then that, the rest will have to go on the right side :S

keep the weight inside the rails if posible, and in front of the rear axle and behind the the front axle, if you have room to mount along the tunnel, very simple is think of tetter tottor weight closer to the center moves eaiser , will transition the weight nicer
