I believe the tweak station you are talking about is made by unity tool.

Yep, it is the Unity one you are looking for. Very good, works for 1/12th scale cars, 1/10th scale trucks, very accurate, easy to use.
Worth the money.

These things are NOT mere tweak stations! It's got a do-hickey that measures camber, castor and toe as well! Yes, you can get a setup station like the hudy, PMB, Integy, etc; but those don't work for pan car; this one does! It's great!

You can always put a piece of paper in the spur/pinion to hold the car still while on the tweak station when using Nitro or Brushless....much better than anything touching to throw off settings...IMHO.

yea..the seller had a $40.00 buy it now.... really got lucky on this one..

The balance on mine was very very close. To make it perfect, all I needed to was about 3" of tape on the bottom of one side. I really love how easy and accurate the caster/camber/toe tool is. I even use that portion of it for my oval 1/12th.
