Default Hudy Set Up Station

Well I picked one up today and set the buggy up and wow, I thought I was set up pretty well with the tools I already have but I was way off...camber, toe was way off...I think I'm going to like using it......

Dude I know exactly what your talking about. I don't own one but a racer at our club offerd to set up my truck with his. Like you I thought my little proline gauges had me spot on. Yeah right!! i was so off he mentioned it must have been hard to drive. The next heat my truck seemed more stable and consistent when turning right and left. haha

I wish I had the cash to buy all the techy stuff but I would rather just pay him a few bucks to take 5 minutes to make sure my setup is true.

How much did you get your setup for? Amain?

Default hudy set up station

I have the complete set up station for the 1/8 off road buggy & truggy. It is very fine quality . The only thing is, is the extras that you need that do not come with it to make it "complete". IE> the set up droop blocks, the truggy top plate as the buggy one is too short. the wheel nuts to hold it on the plates as the regular nuts wont hold tight unless you wrench them on and off . all said and done its more like a 250.00 "complete set up" You can really dial in the set up and its well worth the investment . But I found the extras really make the system complete. The board and decal are also nice to have but a flat table will suffice . Good luck!!

Just wait till the guys post saying a soda can & broke up pit table works just as well. Always happens on these threads & their always sure I wasted my money. I dont bother trying to explain how much more pleasent that money has made my life.If your good enough to feel comfortable duplicating what works by eyeball thats good for you but I aint,I take all the help I can afford.

You can easily make your own droop blocks for free but those new finger wheel nut things look like money well spent for sure. I think they even make them to hold the fixtures together.
