Avid digital mini scale & aluminium heat tape

The Avid digital mini scale is a commonly used tool now in everyone’s pit arsenal, typically for filling diffs. With this 500g max weight scale you can now also measure all sorts of things such as your batteries, motors, etc. with a 0.01g accuracy. Featuring a flip cover to keep your scale protected, the LCD display is back-light for easy reading and can show multiple weighing units such as g, gn, oz, ozt, ct, t, dwt. Also new is their reinforced aluminium heat tape, which is lightweight at just 0.15mm thick, 5 meters (16.4ft) long, and 50mm (2in) wide. The strength is found from the fiberglass that is woven through the material and all rolled onto a nice handy tube. This can also be used on your body in high-wear areas such as your mudguards or even on your tank next to the pipe to help keep your tank and fuel from heat saturation.
