Corner Weight balancing in Los Angeles

There must be a few members on here who are from SoCal. Does anyone know of a shop that can do a good corner weight balancing for the car? So far the only place I know of is Road Race Engineering, but they are kinda far, don't really want to drive that much.

I don't think Derrin has scales. I'll call him and check. Gotta go there anyway in a week for the bumpsteer install.

Here's what an EP National Champion (Chris Raglin) from another fourm I'm on has for a set up......

I did not add fuel or make any changes to the car, so I don't know what thier variability was from, but that was on an expensive set of scales. I think my scales showed the car to weigh 1550 or so.

-Chris
I'm planning on using this setup one my car is finished. I'll probably have to go with 8-10 scales instead of 6, for 2700 lbs.
