how much does it weigh?
7.2 oz/200 grams i think
Two hundred grams is equal to the weight of my vehicle last year. I think using it on the vehicle itself would most certainly increase accuracy significantly. The question is whether hit to the time score is worth it.
You can cut a large part of the scale off cause you dont need the full length of the caliper. You can probably get the weight down to 120-150 grams or so

Here's a great plastic dial caliper with a lock screw I used for Scrambler steering. Highly recommend-

I believe that's just the listed shipping weight. The caliper actually only weighs around 30-40 grams (less if you cut off part of it as windu suggested).

Oh, I thought item weight should’ve been just the product. my bad, that make sense it probably should’ve said product weight.
