Check Out That Chassis

How even should corner weights be in a tube chassie car? And is it better to move weight around or add a flat of preload?

If you can get the car to scale correct by moving weight that is the best way, the less preload you put in the 4-link the freer the suspension will be and the more consistent the car will be. Preload in the 4-link will work but the less the better.
