Default Hudy vs. PMB Set Up Systems

Has anyone had any experience with either of these 1/8 off road set up systems. They both claim to do the same thing but the Hudy system is about $40 more. The Hudy version looks better, but that's all that I can tell from the pictures.

I have a pmb set. I won it at a race as a door prize. It does the job, but it is not real fancy. The numbers on the acrylic are hard to read until you use a black marker to color them. Its fine for setting camber and toe. I dont know what these things cost, but the pmb looks like it would cost about 4 dollars to make.

PMB set up cost approximately $80 vs. between $120-$150 for a Hudy or Team Magic version. Have you had any problems with the parts wobbling? I currently use a Hudy for my 1/10 scale on road, but i don't want to drop that kind of cash for my buggy if i dont need to.

My first was the one from PMB and I have use most others. If you never listen to another one or my post listen to this one. Spend the the extra 40 bucks and get the Hudy!

The PMB is rather spindley. There is one very small screw that threads into the side of a 3/32 thick piece of acrylic that holds the whole thing together. It could easily be broken and render the whole thing useless. I find Hudy stuff to be enormousely overpriced, but its probably sure to stay together.

Heed SpeedBump57's advice spend the extra bucks on a Hudy or TM setup kit.
PMB is cheap but thats it ,cheap.
I believe that PMB has a new ally setup kit ,but have yet to see one.
