Ken did you read the part about running mower tires ? No way he's going to get the numbers. I have played with these big tire karts.First re-stagger the front tires get 1 1/2 " front or real close, then set air at 5lb lefts and six pounds right and rescale it, lower left a little to 59.5 %, nose at 45.5 % is ok for that chassis and weight class, 63% cross would be ideal but get at least 60 %, you've not mentioned cambers ,
RF set at 2.6 neg and LF at .5 pos make sure there set before you check where your numbers are at, every time you make an adjustment you need to go back over everything and tweak adjustments.
No I haven't but he's there with left and nose, and with 5 & 6 air at 53 % cross with NO front stagger figured adding the stagger will get it even closer and was hoping he still had some washers to move.Ken did you read the part about running mower tires ?

no weight to transfer to make stagger effective. Weight is already sitting on lf/rr.With that much stagger, and no bite in the rear end, what's causing The kart to push??
I gotta know what got you running those air pressures ?Here is my numbers again... Left 60.4 Front 45.3 Cross 41.1 total weight 392
Tire Pressures--- LF 15 RF 5 LR 6 RR 8.5
Stagger------- LF 37.5 RF 37 LR 37 1/4 RR 39 1/4
i run on a very small bull ring track with tight turns, some banking and bite in the track

My friend did.... we kept tweaking at each race and the kart seemed to handle pretty good so i just stuck with them. I don't know any better .........higher air pressure on the left front helps it turn in good.... the 5 in the RF helps it grip and so does the 8 RR.... i know the air pressures are crazy but it sort of works out... i think my other problem is my tire sizes. my RF is smaller than my LF .... i tried a taller RF and it pushed bad.........i need to get the correct size tires with the correct pressures and hope that my percentages will improve if not i may have a bent kart. those are my thoughts
Thats another option .I would get rid of that 39.5 tire and atleast try to make all close to the same if you cant size the tires.
i have another RR to replace the 39.5 but its a little more than an inch smaller around.. so that will close my rear stagger to hardly nothing. 3/4 of an inch of rear stagger..... also i can put another right front on.... 38 in and my left will be 37 in if i deflate it down to 5 lbsI would get rid of that 39.5 tire and atleast try to make all close to the same if you cant size the tires.
