G-Force X Weight Gauge Air

G-Force have released their X Weight gauge Air, a wireless corner balance system. Performing the same function as their original X Weight gauge, helping to measure and adjust the weight distribution of your car by displaying the weight/pressure applied at all 4 corners, this Air version does it wirelessly. Sending the data via bluetooth to the accompanying app it removes the need for a bulky display making transport and use much simpler. Each weighing platform is clearly marked so you know which corner to put it on and they can be used with cars up to 2kg. The system is equipped with a reset to 0 function allowing you to better understand the effect of adding weights in different locations in the car.

GForce maintenance stand

GForce have introduced their new maintenance stands, something a little more helpful than a regular car stand. Available in both offroad and onroad variants it is in fact firstly a car stand for foam padding to prevent the car from sliding off, but in addition it also offers 4 holes for doing shock filling and a large central hole for acting as a third hand to hold your motor while you solder the wires for example. Not only that but the side of the offroad stand also has a magnetic area to put your screws or springs so as to not lose them. Available in anodised blue or black, the offroad version is 53mm tall with the onroad version comes in at 32mm tall.
