What is Corner Weighting

Corner Weighting Importance

The importance of corner weight is to improve over all handling of your vehicle. This is particularly important to any type of track situation. Can you stand up correctly if your off balance? No. You can't. You fall down or have to hold on to something which slows you down. Same holds true in a sense for your car. Getting your car balanced correctly dramatically improves handling and lap times.

How is it done?

At Janke Motor Sports we use digital scales set under each tire that are controlled by a central computer. These scales give us the weight or load that each tire is carrying. We then start to distribute the weight evenly until we get a well balanced car. Generally shooting for 50% split between the left front/right rear and the right front/left rear. Combined with the correct tire pressure for the conditions you'll feel the difference around the track.
