For the scales...

RC cars need accurate setups just like full size race cars. These scales use ultra precision low range load cells in CNC machined billet aluminum wheel pads to give you reliable, accurate, and consistant readings.
Your car will handle better than ever before and you can keep it that way week after week.

Up to 15 lbs. per wheel capacity - reading to .01 lb.
Shows you all 4 individual wheel weights PLUS any partial weight % you want - left, rear, cross, etc.
Battery powered for field use - recharger included
Everything fits into a handy carrying case
Special Introductory Price - $898.00

$900? Do they limit one per customer at that low introductory price?

Longacre does make some very trick stuff. I used their scales to do my karts.

But $900?????????????? And that's an "introductory price"!

I don't think so. A tool for a race car shouldn't cost 2 or 3x what your car cost. Scaling can be an important setup technique but is it really worth that much money?? The right postal scales would most likely work just as good (I know people who use bathroom scales for their karts).

Now if they were 3-400 bucks I'd consider it.

Scales like that for an RC car would be way cool though.

That is very trick. Similar system to what they use at all the full size tracks I've been to. In fact it looks to be the exact same thing with smaller scales. Even has the cross weight on the display for oval cars. My MIP tweak station works just fime for me.

It's almost exactly the same as a basic full size race car scale.

We use Intercomp scales at my dad's shop, but Longacre is good equipment. We have quite a few of their other tools, we just don't have their scales.

I'm pretty sure Irwindale speedway uses Longacre. I may be wrong.

Default $900.00??!!??

Um, find Daddy Warbucks and ask him to buy one!! Maybe we'd get lucky and pay $20.00 just to use it for 30 seconds!! Trust me, there are less expensive, JUST AS ACCURATE, systems out there.

I saw one of those in the case at SoCal. Pretty pointless if you ask me.

I'm thinking of making something similar out of acrylic but alot simpler and smaller. Does each brush and spring really need it's own spot?
