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.

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.
