Looking to buy a good tire guage for track use. One that is accurate to .5 lbs incrimets and is durable. Any suggestions.
Get the one with the rubber insulator around it because you WILL drop it, no matter how careful you are . . .Hammer said:So which one is it?
Their 1 to 40 should be fine for the bike. I use mine for my cars and truck as well, so I needed the 60 pound resolution.Hammer said:They have a 1-40 and a 1-60 lbs models.
Unfortunately, the Metzler guy's guage is usually way off, so you may want to try one of the other vendors . . .luvtolean said:I have an Afco (circle track racing brand gauge) that's quite good. Not great, but good. I checked it every year for three years, and it was always the same, 1 pound off.
The most important thing once you get a good gauge, is that you get it calibrated. The race tire vendors can do this for you.
They have been one of our sponsors for 15 years and have always treated us right. They usually have a lot of the small stuff that no one else seems to want to carry, like different sizes of Dzus fasteners (with matching sized rivets), master cylinder banjo bleeders & other assorted bits.Hammer said:Just ordered one from Sport and comp. Looks like a decent company for supplies and talked to Todd, nice guy seems like.
You know, that baffles me. It's not that pricy nor difficult to find someone to improve that site. They could probably give someone a good deal on product and get a real improvement.abtech said:They admit the website is lame at best.
