tim, I had the same question as tom , does the chassis have to be level on the stand? I’ve asked people at the track and they said no, that it didn’t need to be level on the stand to do the alignment. when I do my alignments at home I always level the kart before starting the alignment. I’m using the sniper v2 inox setup. if I were to lean on the kart that would upset the laser on the grids.
