So we dusted off the club scales and got them calibrated, we'll have them out at our next event.

You'll see the option to sign up through Motorsports Reg, there will be an additional cost of $5. We will take cash on site as well for any open slots. For that, you'll get a slip with the total weight, as well as the individual corner weights. In the future, we may offer longer time slots to do corner balancing, but that's sometimes hard to do on site. So we'll evaluate after this event and see if it'll be possible to do on site.

For the process, it will be pretty informal; the scales will be open all day and we'll have a list of people who have paid. Bring your car up when you're not running or working, get in line, and we'll get you up on the scales.

Let us know if you have any questions!

How does it work? Can you drive onto the scales or do you have to jack up the car and place the scales under the tires?

The scales are drive up, there are a set of ramps that will be set out so they can be driven up on.

Before you drive up, they will measure your wheelbase, and expand the scales distance to match. Ideally they will also be shimmed to be perfectly level.

Your data will be written on a special form (to take with you) showing your cross weights as well as corner weights, with and without driver.

Good info to have. Highly recommended.😎

If you measure your wheelbase (center of front wheel to center of rear wheel) and the width of your front tires from outside to outside it will save time and make everything run smoother.

I missed the weigh in at the last event. I heard the last call announcement but had to go work the course. Any chance you will be doing it again soon?

We'll try to have them out at one of the fall events, not sure which one yet though. Probably in the cooler months, it'll be easier to have someone stand out there manning them.
