Without because driver is always shifting around in the seat.   Do a search in George's build.   It's in there somewhere but I don't remember

 2.) The few who learn by observation
 3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

If it's an FXS/FXT, yes. To support what stvn_VA said, FXS/FXT can use different seats which keep you in a firm fixed position. As usual I'm probably way off as far as advice, but I use baseline percentages (during chassis assembly) of 43% Front, 57% Rear, and 50% Left, then adjust from there once on the track.
