Default Setup staion

I used a friends Hudy camber gauges from the super premium bling deluxe Hudy setup station. I loved how well they worked. I want to know if the integy stations, such as http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXKTR2&P=7. Work equaly as well. Do they have that same quality feel and action that the Hudy does? Is their a quality difference between Integy's station 1 and station 2? I already have a Hudy setup board. Now I just need some gauges.

Yes, they are just as good, but you will need a tweek station and ride height gauge if you dont already have one...

I think im going to get this one

To really use the first one shown effectively you will also need a pair of set-up wheels and a set-up board (unless you already have one) in addition to the gauges Ben mentioned.

The next step up from that one HAD been Integy's Set-up Station 2. I had one and the pieces were very nice. It came with their leveling board AND the pair of set-up wheels so it was a "complete" kit (other than no droop, ride height or tweak guages). The thing I DIDN'T like is that you have to install all the stuff twice, gauges front / wheels rear to do the front, then remove it all and install the gauges rear and wheels front to finish the job. The Hudy kit comes with four gauges so you set up once, set up the car and you're done. It also comes with ride height, droop, and tweak gauges (very nice ones at that) the Set-up Station 2 is missing AND in the "bling" case you noted. Plus it's coming from Europe where the dollar is worth about nothing anymore on exchange. Hence it costs double plus a bit (double for the twice as much stuff, the plus a bit for poor exchange).

I'd not seen the one Ben linked to. That would probably be a good alternative if you're not wanting to (understandably) splash for the Hudy kit. At least it has four gauges. BUT by the time you shell out for a board and height, droop and tweak gauges you're looking at $150-200 depending on what you get.

Unfortunately, goin' fast ain't cheap...but good set-up equipment is invaluable.

ive got the one scotrikk was talking about the setup station 2. i spent about 100 on it and it very nice. the only draw back is switching from front to back. but i dont use it enough to justify the 200 for hudy one to the boss ive used it a few times and it works well

I use the Hudy Setup Station and love it. It is high quality, and includes the tweak station, something extra you have to buy with the Integy system.

I got the Hudy from my LHS, and if you have a quality LHS nearby, I suggest you check with the about the price.

When I raced 1/8 on road gas I had the hudy.
ITs by far the best setup stationon the market.
BUT If you can't justify the price the integy is a good set
