The most frustrating thing about scaling a race car is messing with the wires. They get tangled and tripped over, they fall out of the scale pad, they get run over, stepped on, and broken; to boot, they are difficult to put back after you are done. Tanner Racing has a better idea. The company has introduced its new wireless radio frequency scales.
These new scales are fast and easy to set up, and provide the added measure of privacy when your weight distribution might be just a little different from, and superior to, your competitors. Many racers are trying new combinations of setup and weight percentages that offer an improvement when developing balanced setups.
Can you spot what is missing? You got it-there are no messy wires to tangle and trip over. The control panel can be positioned away from the car and away from prying eyes. Driver/owners can easily view the weight distribution while sitting in the car.
Knowledge of the crossweight percentages and front-to-rear percentages can help your competition discover your secrets. Your own crewmembers may inadvertently spill the beans to other race teams. Now, you can keep vital technical information away from prying eyes by being able to remove the display from public view.
The small 3 1/2 x 5 1/2-inch handheld control panel contains all of the functions and has a backlit high-contrast display for easy night viewing. The unit has long-range reception capability, and the long-life batteries are rechargeable.
The scales are available in three sizes: 10 by 10 inches, 12 by 12 inches, and 15 by 15 inches. These sizes are the perfect fit for all forms of motorsports, from Karting to Nextel Cup.
