I have the Hudy set up station and it is very nice, but I can count on one hand how many times I have used it at a race meet. I have since gone to the following to check all my settings:

Ride Height-Buggy

Ride Height-Truggy

Camber

Fine Tuning

Just add a nice set up board for a flat and even surface and you are set.

My settings stay put for a regular weekend. Maybe my droop will float 1mm. The better cars hold settings ok, for better drivers at least.

I don't bring my station to the track. I setup like everyone else, by feel mostly. But if I find a setup that works well, the car gets tossed on the station ASAP so I can record why.



In other news:
-can't set camber with warped wheels
-consistant toe settings are nice with a station
-I really don't like the measure rods technique. More room for error. Bent parts etc. etc.
