Received mine today, looks fantastic.

I just seem to be having a problem using it.

I've read the instructions 10 times.

I just don't understand how the tool will stay in position to get a reading. Won't the spring always want to snap back to 0?

P.S
Mine does look different from the finished product. Mine does not have any of that white part or what seems to be an o-ring around it in the picture you have provided here

Wish I had seen this a few weeks ago when ordering the Buku clutch and dusk caps for my MBX7. Great products and can't wait to get a hold of this brake setting unit. Question: does it matter the type of screw gun to use. I carry in my pit box a 3.7 volt hitachi screw gun but also have a 12 and 18volt screw guns. Does it matter which one to use?

Has anyone compared their readings with their car hot and cold? If so does it change much?

i have compared on my st-rr. with the stock brake set up, there would be 5-7 lbs difference after a 10 min run. with the upgraded brakes, after 10 min there is 1-2 lbs difference.

Just took delivery of Malin's new Brake Bias Gauge for her Xray XB8.

Her logo came out awesome
