Default IRS Balance Tools for TC and 1/12th

i got these new balance tools from IRS that really worked awesome.they are brand new so i thought i would share some pics and info. they allow you to set the balance of your car very easily and are very precise.they have 2 pins that fit into the holes on your chassis and you set the car down.you can do this with or without wheels on the car.it allows the car to roll on the 1/2 ball very easily for the most accurate balance measurement.they are simple to use and the most accurate i have used.

its so easy to use.no more having to piss around trying to get my car lined up on those little pointed pins.you turn your car upside down,plop em in and hold them in place until you put your car down. they really are worth there weight in gold.

Do each of the semi-balls bolt on to a centerline hole on the chassis in the front and back? Then depending on which way the chassis tilts, shows which side needs more weight to counter-balance?

Any idea on how well this would work for a hot bodies cyclone?

The Cyclone already has holes in the bottom of the chassis to use these.

Awesome. Thanks for the help. Dont have my car with me to check. Got anxious and ordered me a set as well! Been looking for a easy and precise way to balance my car once I get everything setup and this seems to be it.

Thanks Jason for putting our Balance Buttons (P/N IRS3020, $12.99 for 2) on RCTech. They will be on the web site within a few days but they are in stock now. Anyone can call and order them @ 609-476-2371.
The Balance Buttons are extreemely easy to use. I simply drilled 1 5/64" hole in each end of my car and then placed the car on them. Immediately I saw the car was heavy on 1 side. I moved my electrics around and the car balanced out. Sometimes you might have to add some lead to finish the job. This will require you to use less preload on your springs to get the tweak correct.
I will let everyone know when they are on the web site but for now you can call to get them.

Regards,
Dave Irrgang aka DiffDude
