Ok, I get the 4 scales on a scale board but how would you get an accurate account of where you were on ALL 4 wheels if you only have 2 on the scales? would you turn the car around and weigh the front?

thanks

Up until several years ago most people really only checked the LR weight in pan car racing. With the advancement of the cars and technology most everyone has gone to 4 scales in recent years. 2 scale use to be a little cheaper and simpler option (and for more limited ability levels/budget levels it still is) but nowadays you'll notice most all of the serious racers have 4. We actually dont even make/sell our 2 scale boards anymore since there was not the demand and they are a little more work to make on our end anyway.

You can turn the car around and get the front weight with a 2 scale, but the #'s generally dont correspond well to the 4 scale becase the height of the block vs the scale height is critical. Even different 4 scale boards can read slightly different so its important to be consistent and use the same board for a baseline if at all possible.
