HOW TO CORNER WEIGHT YOUR RACING CAR
Corner weighting and scaling is very important when trying to make your car and driver as fast as possible.
Proper set up requires the car’s corners weights are correctly set and the process is repeatable in the workshop and at the circuit.
This quick guide will take you through the process of corner weighting your car.
1. Prepare the car
The car must be race ready before you set its corner weights. This means that fluid levels, including fuel, should be as they would be in the race.
The car’s geometry should also be properly set. Ensure ride heights, camber, caster and toes, are all checked.
Also be sure to check the tyre pressures as this can has obvious effects on corner weights.
2. Prepare the scales
Find a level area to set up your corner weight scales to the track and wheel base of your car. Use a straight edge and spirit level to ensure all four scales are level. If your floor is not level, you can use scale pads. Mark the location of each scale pad on the floor.
3. Set the scales and car
Roll your car into position with the corner weight scales next to each wheel. Connect the scales to the control unit and zero.
Jack one side/end of the car up and slide the scales directly under each tyre – ensure the tyre sits in the middle of the scale. Repeat on the other side.
Disconnect the roll bars and give the front and rear a strong push to compress the suspension and settle. You’ll need to do this each time you make an adjustment to give consistent results.
4. Record the results
Now record your results using our corner weight scales set up sheet. If the corner weights are not correct, adjust, settle and record each weight until you have the desired weight distribution.
Finally, remember to reattach the anti-roll bars.
