Weight placement

If using round weights, for optimum performance, does it matter if the weights go with the body or across the body?

If by "round weights" you are thinking of a 3/8" x 5" lead rod and are weighting a stock wheelbase car, then it is easy to get what you want by installing the lead across the body. I think across the body is always preferable.
