Default Digital Scale Setup Board

I am wanting to buy a setup board with 4 digital scales at each corner, but cant remember for the life of me who makes one. I thought Niftech did, but I was wrong there, can someone point me in the right direction please?

I use 4 cheap cooking digital scales to corner weight my cars....I`ll have to post a pic ture of it... ..the scales cost about 1500Yen each.... but I know that HPI and OVA have this new trick scale that costs a grip but they go for about 3800 yen a pop that would be too much money in book for 4 of them that is.. . .......... . . . .

1500 yen is really cheap, Niftech sells single scales for $160 each... 4 of em is $640, plus the money for the board. Yeah I'm sure it's precise, but no way I'm droppin that kind of cash to see what my car weighs. I know there is a company that sells a setup board with 4 digital scales for something like $250, thats what I'm looking for...

Cool, I'll check Integy's site. If I were to buy seperate scales, what maximum weight should I buy, would 500 grams work, or do I need more?

the ones that I bought go up to 1000 grams each...more than that would be a waist

Cool. Checked out the Integy one, and I dont think it would work too well with a sedan, looks like it's designed for pan cars. There was a really high quality one, avalible with 2 or 4 scales, I really wish I could remember the name of it.

This is what you are looking for.

They don't have the picture for the 4 scale, but the 2 scale will give you an idea. Very pricey!

I have 4 old postage scales that I have used in the past.

Best method = 1 exacto knife

Honestly, I've actually had better results using the old tried and true method of the exacto knife in the center of the rear pod/ bumper.

Randman I know Dave at IRS. Talked with him last Sunday as a matter of fact. If you order from their website you will get fast service with no problems. I ordered 3 times from them in the last 2 months on a Sunday each time and had my stuff quickly. Dave at IRS is a super nice guy and great for the industry.
