Default Best set up station for around $50?

A little too cheap to spend $250+ on the Hudy Set Up Station so I have been looking at some of the plastic set up kits for around $50. I have seen the PMB, Integy, and a plastic Hudy used for around $50 and was wondering which is the best buy for the money?

James,

I use the Integy one, so do a few other guys out at Mike's. You are more than welcome to come check mine out this weekend - i Shawn Grider uses the older plastic Hudy one.

I couldn't fork over the 250 for the Hudy, so i settled on the integy one with the carrying case - found one on ebay for around 50-60 shipped - i have been very happy with the results.

I also think the Integy purple aluminum one, is the best bang for the buck...

P-dub,

I have been looking for something like that, but the Integy has the nuts, but without the screws needed for cars like the Xray, can someone (i.e. me) not just buy screws to screw into the nuts that come with the station - would that work?

Those BMI look way cool, but if i can spend $2 for screws rather than $22 shipped for the BMI's - i would much rather do that, and spend the other $20 for some your bumpers...

thanks,
mcgoo

The Integy station I have came with standard thread (AE or Losi ), but if you have the metric ones then you should be able to use a screw
