There is nothing wrong with how you are setting it.  Today’s soft chassis will get a huge change from the stand to the ground (especially a 28mm at the weight you’re running).  Its all relative.  On the stand or on the ground, you’re still making an adjustment relative to where you were before.  Some people make all their adjustments with the kart on the scales.  Nothing wrong with that either, if that’s how you always do it.  If you’re going to set it on the ground, the surface needs to be perfectly flat, which is why they do it on the scales (they can also see the weight changes as well).  Just don’t set it on the pit road and assume its flat…its not.  Small changes in level when the kart is loaded can make a big change in caster/camber and weights.
