TrackStar Corner Weight System is designed for serious racers to measure their cars’ corner weight distribution easily, and make necessary weight adjustment to balance their cars for the best performance.
TrackStar Corner weight scales allow precise car weight distribution which is critical to on track success. The four corners of the car may be bearing different amounts of the car weight. The unequal corner weights can be felt as the car rolling more when turning in one direction than the other. The car’s stability is compromised which will adversely affect its balance. A well balanced car is generally easier to drive quicker due to the car increased stability.
To make sure weight percentages are correct, computerised scale systems must be used. Correct chassis setup separates the front runners from the followers. Corner Weight Scales provide the necessary data for anyone to become a chassis expert.
Ideally the car should have 50% of its weight on the Left Front and Right Rear tires, and 50% on the Right Front and Left Rear. If your car's diagonal corner weights are not equal then its handling will be unbalanced - it will turn better in one direction than in the other (all other things being equal).
TrackStar Corner Weight System consist of one main unit and four separate scales, the maximum weight limit for each scale is 2000 grams.
• Designed for 1/8 buggy and truck, 1/10 buggy & touring car and 1/12 car.
• Measure the car’s corner weight, front and rear distribution and make adjustment if necessary.
• The maximum weight limit for each scale is 2000 grams.
• Measurements can be displayed in gram, oz.
• Highly accurate weight measurement in 0.1g increments (equivalent to 0.01 oz).
• Powered by external DC source (6~13.8V).
Maximum weight of each scale: 2000g
Power source: External DC source(6~13.8V)
Main unit dimension (length x width x height): 130.4x104.5x35.3mm
Scale dimension (length x width x height): 59.1x65.1x17.5mm
Net weight of Main unit & 4 scales (not including battery): 393g
The hardware seems nice, however, there is an error in the programming. The crossweight percentage is calculated backwards. It should be Left Rear and Right Front weight, but it is using the Right Rear and Left Front. The directions are also printed correctly, but the math inside the unit is bad. Otherwise, it seems to be a decent unit.Very pleased with this system. Easy to setup and proved to be accurate. my GT12 car is perfectly balanced now as a result of using this system.So far this has got to be the least expensive corner scale system I have seen. Being my first set like this, I am happy with it's compactness and functionality.Time will tell how it holds up in the field. It has proven very valuable so far as I have been able to get my race cars dialed in that last bit to make them that much more competitive.very useful tool, easy to use .
Power supply required which must be purchased separately.These scales are great for weighting and balance your Rc vehicles. I have a 1/10 touring car and a 1/8 Buggy. ideal for both. Once you balance your car it makes a huge difference in handling cornering.great tool for tuning my car, it balance very good the modelWorks well - ensure to have properly setup your car and use the scales on a perfectly level and flat board. - Any tweak will give misrepresented readings.This is yet another great investment from HobbyKing. I was a little sceptical about the accuracy of this tool, but when I received it, set it up (Including the 2Kg calibration procedure) I was amazed and truly satisfied with my purchase.
It never fails to amaze me how HobbyKing manages to have such quality products at such amazing prices, and shipping is just absolutely awesome too!!very good product, it is my expectation. it is the same as other more expensive. tidy in its box. it works with the power of IMAX.
