Default Xtreme Racing Truggy Top Plate - any good?

Picking up a hudy 1/8 setup station, is this truggy plate workable? I just hate to spend $40+ on their top plate when this one can be had for $15 on ebay. Every dollar counts these days, figured I'd at least ask...

Here is a link on amain:

CarolinasRc web site references that it can be used with the Hudy station, but wondered if anyone had any first hand experience. I would be using it with an 8t 2.0.

No, buy the Hudy.

The problem with it is it's not cut out to go around the front shock tower so it's a complete pain to use. The shock tower lifts it out of position on one side and makes it nearly impossible to get an accurate measurement. Then the degree marks are too short and don't run all the way back to the indicator on the setup station. Last, it's only marked up to +5 degrees so you can't measure your steering at full throw to see if it's even.
I've used mine on my Xray and my friends 8T 2.0. It was even worse on the Losi than it is on my Xray. I will be ordering the Hudy eventualy.
