Corner Balance

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here used corner scales to balance their Europa?

I'm about to begin a restoration of my new (to me) 1970 S2.

My plan is to get it running, stopping, and turning properly before disassembly, paint, etc.


I'm going to get some digital corner scales to play around with front/rear, left/right, and diagonal balance.


I'm not planning on racing the car.

Interesting test, so I will be watching :)

Question: what is it supposed to be? I would assume even, but I know in the early Esprits the engine lays over on its side which with the addition of a driver in the Federal side the car sags on the LHS. On the domestic model, the car sits level with the drivers weight.
