Exclamation tweak station

Hi i would like to know what kind of tweak station do most of people use .
I dont have any but i dont want to spend alot of money on them (max 30 dollar , 20 british pound) .
Or if any of you just build your own tweak station even if its not very precise it doesnt matter thanks for helping me out.

Just lift the car at the centre and see which wheel comes down first.

I did write something on my old website about the way to do it. It makes a big difference, the car will run straight and turn in a more balanced way if the tweak is right.

Hudy tweek station is very good. Although it is a bit pricey, you get what you pay for i think.

you can also get the MIP or Integy bubble tweek stations too they are cheaper but work via a bubble

Wouldnt a single digital scale work for tweak if you just moved the car round and checked weight on each tire?

The best tweak station can be made yourself. Here is one I made for my 1/10 scale offroad. It wasn't too difficult to make either. The board can be leveled using the adjustable feet, I covered it with contact paper, etc...
