What scales do people use for corner weights for racing?

Thanks

You get what you pay for when it comes to a quality scale.

The best system on the net is at Lefthander RC.

I bought mine from there and I use it for off-road or on-road and Oval.
Comes with a custom leveling board and 4 scales at a great price of $79.00

Just get it! You won't be sorry you did!

1000 grams each. They work perfectly fine too. First thing I did was get a calibration weight and check them. All 4 were dead on.

Edit: just checked the price online and they are priced at 11.99 each now. HF has a lot of coupons though. I got mine when they were on sale.

LOL!

First of all, there are more sensors in the scales to give a more precise measurement. If you weight in grams , oz etc.
Buying cheep scales is not recommended.
May give you inaccurate readings if the tire is not dead center on scales.


Also, you need a leveling board or a level surface to set the scales on to measure correctly each time.

One thing to remember is once you set your vehicle on the leveled scale system is to lightly push down center on the chassis.

This will rebound the shocks to there natural setting.
Then read wheel weights.
