And to expand on that detecting the tweak is less then half the problem, the issue once detected is removing it. I have checked a few Hudy setup boards and they are not dead flat. Mine is out between -015-.020 corner to corner. It works fine for a rough idea, but I would check with a straight edge, corner to corner before deaming it flat.
At PPD we've built 3 different tweak plates for TC5, Mi3, and Cyclone. We continue to get requests for new models. Problem is, a single use tool that is fairly expensive to build in limited quantities, has limitations.
That kicked off some out of the box thinking, and we have a multi use car stand (on or offroad), tool organizer, workstation, small parts storage, and tweak plate that not only detects, but removes minor tweak on a variety of chassis.
This has not been done before because chassis are so different in shape its a difficult proposition. We've overcome that.
So, you no longer have to sell the tweak plate with the car.
Here is a sneak peak of our soon to be released tool. Expect it's release sometime next week.
