Default what kind of scales do you guys use to balance?

i think i know how to balance a car, just place weight where it needs.

but the main question is what kind of scales do you guys use? is there a cheap affordable ones out there.

i was thinking of 4 small jewelery or kitchen style scales.

in case anyone wants to try and flame, i did a search and couldnt find anything.

IRS makes neat balancing balls for a very reasonable price. They are really good for left/right balance. Front to back can be done with a tube. Balance scales will drive you nuts.

I have a new TC5 and I was wondering the same thing. It has holes in the chassis for it? I heard theres a way to balance with string?
