Default Alignment setup stations

Can someone point me in the right direction to buy the "right" alignment setup station for my on road 1/10 cars. I'm looking to buy from tower hobbies, but am not to sure which of the kits there has everything I need, being I'm not sure of what I do need to make up a fully equipped station. Price irrelevant.

Cheers.

I'd suggest Hudy setup station but if you're ordering from Tower you're pretty much limited to Integy.

My Hudy setup station has always seemed more accurate than the Integy I used to have. I would look for a used Hudy setup station on eBay.

Or make it a search item on eBay and get one for about half price.

Don't buy the older style plastic Hudy setup station.

If price is irrelevant, then get the Hudy all in one.

I have at my disposal the integy setup station 2, and the Hudy all in one for tc.
I use the Hudy most often. It however does not come with wheel nuts.

Integy makes a nice knurled wheel nut in SAE and metric sizing. That's what I use. No tools required to affix the setup stands at each corner of the car.
