You cant go wrong with a set of REB-CO electronic scales.

Check out Tanner Racing, they build a $999 set that I prefer over the others. Pretty nice people also.

can scales be used at a track on dirt or should they be kept in the garage?

It is best to scale your car in the same spot every time. You can take them to the track, but you have to level them somehow. It is a good idea to level them in the shop, but if they are not exactly level, mark the spot on the floor where you scale the car the first time, and scale there from then on. Otherwise, the information you get from scaling is not as usefull because it is not the exact same circumstances.

I just bought Reb-Co's 1 weigh scales, very simple, 2 buttons one to zero out the pads the other button changes between 2 screens, wheel weight screen and percentages screen

I own the Reb-Co scales as well. Once I unattached the control box from the plastic case they are alot easier to use (personal complaint).

I bought the 1-weigh scales, too. I got them from Speedway because they were throwing in the case for the pads for free. I've had no problems with them, but I can see where a person would not want the plastic case attached to the control box. If my name were Roger Ebert I would have to give them a "thumbs up".
