I like the integy.

One thing many people over look is that the hudy is much harder to read. Good luck reading white markings on clear polycarbonate in the summer sun!

I like the Integy better than the Judy as well. . .

But I saw a guy use lipstick to fill in the hard to read numbers and stuff on his Hudy. . .worked pretty well.

The best thing i have been told to do with the Hudy is
to clean it with some methylated spirits,
then color in the markings in red and black marker,
then wipe the excess off with a DAMP cloth with some of the methylated spirit on.

It would be wise to try a small area, probably underneath one of the plates to make sure you dont damage the plastic first though

i personally have tried both and choose the Hudy setup system...price is not a factor for me so for one the Hudy came with the setup up board which is good for quick checks of the toe-in and the droop gauge is a great feature....i personally have no problems seeing the marks on the gauges....i believe it is more accurate then the Integy in your dialing your car in at 1/2 to 1/4 degree adjustments cause your have marks overlapping marks instead of one mark next to other other if you know what im trying to give you a mental picture of.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

I use the Fastrax version of the Hudy and Integy system. The original design was by Serpent, quite a few years back.

I suspect the Fastrax and the Integy is one and the same thing, marketed under a different name.

It's clearer to read than the Hudy.

It's stronger because it's alloy not perspex.

It comes in a smart carrying case.

And very important to me, it's half the price, and does exactly the same thing.

As for a set up board, I have a plate of glass on my work bench, and you can't get more accurate than that.

I also use an MIP tweek station and find it very useful. I often take this trackside with me, but the set up system stays in the work shop.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
