5 Tips For CORNER WEIGHT Scale Setup

To get accurate and consistent results when corner weighting, there are a few simple things you should do during setup. Let’s dive into them.

None of these steps are tricky, but when rushing at the track or in the workshop it is easy to miss the small things that can have you wasting your time creating a flawed setup. With this in mind ensuring your tyres are as close to the centre of their respective scales as possible.

Ensuring your steering wheel is straight and the handbrake is on are a few of the other quick checks you should do before starting, along with triple-checking your scales are in the right orientation before loading your vehicle with this being the major common cause of headaches.

Aside from this, ensuring your flat patch and scales themselves are clear of any debris which can cause inconsistent readings is important to avoid point loading and a check the scales are level will help ensure optimal results. While all this is demonstrated using a set of Intercomp SW650 wireless scales, the same applies to other brands and wired setups regardless.
