Default Scales

Anyone know where I can find some scales for a buggy. Looking for something to weigh all 4 corners of the car. Thanks.

excuse the my stupidity. But i guess that is how you would weigh your buggy?

Instead of putting it on one big scale??

It's to check the cars weight balance front to back and left to right VS overall weight.

I bought a digital scale from my local Harbor Freight Store and made 3 pads at the same height as the scale and just weight ea. corner and do the math. The scale was less than 20 bucks on sale.
