Most people only see setup stations as a tool to check camber and toe, but there's a lot you can gain by using a setup station consistently. Steering throw is very valuable and can make a huge impact over how your car handles. It's very important to have equal angles from left to right. Also, camber gain can be measured and help you set up your links to actually understand what is happening to your suspension as it compresses through ruts. It's understandable if you race casually there isn't a need for a full blown system, but if you're wanting to gain a competitive edge with advanced knowledge of tuning I think the setup station is a must.

I found the setup station makes setup faster and easier. Takes the guess work out of it. Biggest plus makes the car drive straighter

racing kit = $500
2 high end servos = $250
top racing engine w/ pipe = $500

and the list goes on

$150 HUDY setup station is just negligible cost if you race several times a month

i have found that the set up station is way off compared to the camber gauge, i have to set -4 camber on the hudy to accomplish -2 on the plastic camber gauge
