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.
