Corner weights

I have read the previous threads about corner weighting:

http://www.106rallyeforum.com/forum2...ad.php?t=93654

http://www.106rallyeforum.com/forum2...ad.php?t=80228

But didn't find an answer. Which axle is more important to get 'right', the front or the rear? I have got some weird numbers on the scales and it is going to be a compromise.

I don't think there's a definitive answer for this.

It depends on what you have fitted to the car and its intended use.


Mine standard is

LF 282
RF 330.5

LR 145.0
RR 163.5

That's with me in the seat (75Kg) and 10 litres of fuel, cast iron block and a supercharger and saggy shit standard suspension.

I'd say they're equally important.

Intented use would be motorsport (used for racing). Got 90kg of difference on the rear.

Yes I guessed that nevermind

90kg difference on the rear is considerable, is the rear axle level? Sometimes if the ARB end plates aren't fitted perfectly they can be one spline out which effectively makes the car "weigh" more on one side.

I would jack it up, remove the arb end plates. Check the main torsion bars are the same on both sides, then re-fit the ARB with no load on it carefully, and weigh again.

I have done a couple of your tips, thanks!

The torsion bars are 23mm from Imaxle (company in the UK). The ARB is 24mm and was loose when weighing. What do you mean with

The axle is refurbished. Unfortunately I did not have it weighted before the refurb :-(

Photo with 3/4 tank and without driver (LHD). With driver in the front matches within 10kg (fine for me).

Sorry I meant the height of both arms on each side are the same so the torsion bars are in the same position.

99!? that seems really low. How can it be.

Do you have a 25kg/56lb weight to check your scales are measuring equally?

Seems corner weighing is not everybody's skill... Another mechanic came up with this (same car):
