Wrap up the ultimate holiday gift for your racer — Proform Parts next-generation 7,000 lb. wireless scales (part number 67644). Proform Parts improved its tried-and-trusted scale system, with enhanced wireless connectivity and a black, non-slip coating.
The scales come with a free, downloadable PC program for file exporting, viewing, and saving weights. You can send data live from the scale system to a PC via a USB cable, which comes included.
The scale pads measure only 1-5/16″ thick. They have beveled edges that allow you to drive cars easily on and off the pads.
A wireless, handheld, backlit LCD display shows weight measurements, battery life, and reception of scale signals. Each scale pad has a colored LED that corresponds to the colors of each corner on the handheld’s display.
The handheld allows racers to view total vehicle weight as well as weight and/or percentage per each wheel, side-to-side, front-to-back, and cross. The system provides measurements in lb. or kg.
Each scale pad weighs up to 1,750 lb. The scale system is accurate to 0.5%.
A pair of AA batteries powers each pad. The handheld unit uses four AAs. Batteries come with the system.
Also included is a sturdy, reinforced carrying case that safely carries your scale pads and display to wherever you need them.
A wide range of major resellers — including Speedway Motors, Summit Racing Equipment, and Jegs — carry the Proform Parts 7,000 lb. wireless scales. It retails for less than $1,000.
