Is there even one made for 1/10 off-road? I don't see any reason why you would want one either.

Sure is , car balance and weight distribution is very important in off road racing as well as camber caster and toe...

Yah know... when I first started out, I thought I needed all this high-tech stuff to be competitive. Then I pitted in a big race next to Charlie Perez. On his pit table were the following items:

1. 7" fan that he put on himself or on a car if it just came off the track from a race.
2. 2 Battery chargers. (With batteries nearby)
3. Soldering Iron
4. Can of Soda
5. His cars.
6. open lid box with his tools in it.

As the day wore on, he would periodically grab some tires and glue them up for where ever he was headed off to race the next week.

Since then, he's opened my eyes to what a person really needs on race day at the track.

I hope your new setup board sets your car on fire. Where are just trying to help you not waste money. There is no need for a setup board when racing off-road. Hell most of the fast guys at my track check camber by a can of soda or by eye and only run the toe at zero . I race on a track that is low bit where setup is key. But if you feel you need the board to be fast go for it But don't be pissed off b.c we tried to help you save some money.

So anyway:

http://www.redrc.net/2007/07/hard-to...-setup-system/
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/3490

Not sure to what extent your looking to do. Do you want to watch camber gain and castor change? Or are you simply looking for a firm, graphically printed board like these?? http://www.mcmoneydesigns.com/

I somewhat agree with what other people are saying on this site. Camber is usually set by eye or feel. Droop (limiting) is set as per track conditions and by using a caliper. Most settings I use a caliper, protractor and a right angle for. Let us ALL know why you want one of these setup stations. CUrious to know. Talk to you soon!

thanks dave that is exactly what I was after... I want to be able to check toe and see if the car is square and if the chassis is tweaked... plus have a flat board to put my car on to check camber... it is not that hard ....
