    I find it interesting how much corner weights, (percentages), can change between different karts! I have my own corner weights spreadsheet. It has some features other corner weight programs don't have. One of those features is the difference, in pounds and percentages, between the RR and LR.

    Over the past three years I have entered a lot of recommended setups. Interestingly, the great majority of the recommended setups have a difference between the RR and LR of right around 100%. Plus or minus 20% Interestingly, that number has varied from about 30% to 200%, and sometimes more. I have never been able to ascertain why some karts respond to such vastly different numbers. I have an idea that nobody can explain it. I'm not saying it's wrong, I have no idea really, but it sure seems strange!

    James' numbers look like a good starting point to me. If it bites up enough at Thunder, you might even go up a tad more on cross from there. You could also roll a degree (or two) out of the caster and add a 1/4 or 1/2* of RF camber (depending on how the car is working and what the track is like when you go out.)

    Taylorcole66, please ignore the above text (from Al Nunley) to avoid confusion. The numbers originally given are proven to work well at Carnesville and similar tracks on the Triton, along with the feedback for possible adjustments from Brian (CarlsonMotorsports).

    I could not agree more with the statement above. Taylorcole66, take the numbers that James gave ya and roll with them, the kart will be fast.

    All Triton's are identical, so yes, the setup will be the same for a 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
