Scaling questions
« on: March 16, 2015, 01:33:40 AM »
Ive never scaled my car or any car before. I got access to a set of scales and figured Id give it a shot. My car is a stock torsion bar front and a ladder bar rear with anti roll. I know they have to be on a flat level surface. With the tires pumped up to proper air pressure, fuel added. I assume weight in the driver seat to mimic myself? Then just equal it out best I can side to side? Any tips would be great. Ive been fighting traction issues from day one with this combo. So hopefully this will help.

my idea is see how close the rears are first then jack torsion bars up or down to get the rears closer.

I didn't mention to jack the opposite bar up or down to change rear weights.

I just knew it was this. If anyone has a question I can answer it. Maybe I will know some things.
