The caster marks should be on the other piece(the piece that bolts to the hub), those are camber marks. Nice board.

I Just noticed this:

The holes for the wheel axles appears to be too large for just the axle to hang from. This may affect accurate measurements of camber.

Other than that, this looks like a setup system that Mr. Hudy would be proud of.

Bummer. If he put those into production, and sold them cheaper than Hudy, he'd make a killing! Oh well, just gotta suck it up and spend the money

Question:

From the looks of the picture, the triangle peices don't bolt to the wheel hexes. Also it looks like the peice with the camber markings on it are fixed to the peice that would connect to the wheel hexes.

how do you get a camber reading? It seems that the peice that would tell you what the camber is is always at 0degrees (because its straight up and down)
