The driver is on the best side. If your going to have a diver on a side and have a offset cg as a result, then its better to have them on the right side, then the preload dialed into the right rear 4 link isnt as much so the alignment of the sides is easier to achieve . When I have setup supercharged left drive cars I notice a major increase in left side weight at launch that is very difficult to get out of the car unless the chassis is very torsionally stuff. They work better with just driving off the left wheel, and thats not a recipe for max traction, so I got one guy to change the chassis and stiffen it up and it went faster with less weight disparity. Admittedly his chassis wasn't stiff enough to cross load the amount of weight needed to get even traction but that problem would have been far less severe with the driver on the right hand side.

But you need a lot of power to be able to see this happening, I doubt if NA engines would show it but the effect is still there and it would still be measurable.
