When you are setting your ride for autocross purposes, do you follow lotuses recommendation of 75kg of ballast on each side, or do you just set it up using the driver?

If I just use ballast on the drivers side, I can't seem to get my RF side low enough even with the spring perch on my Penskes as high as possible.

I set mine as well as the alignment with the weight in the drivers side only.
Keep in mind I have the track pack, locally no one would probably care but nationally you could get protested.

Ryno - Jay car is in ASP, so setting ride height is not a concern to him.


Jay - I would put the weight in to do the ride height first, (rake balance) then put yourself in for the corner balance, and alignment. I think it would help a lot more if you move your battery to the passenger side (front or rear), than doing the corner weight. It has bigger impact right on the get go. Assuming it is legal in SP which I have no idea. :shrug:

My battery is only 6 pounds so I doubt it would make much difference.
