Default Hudy Ultimate Set-up System

I was thinking about getting a tweak board but then I talked to this one guy and he said that I should rather get a Hudy Set-up board first. Well I wuz thinkin and I currently have a ride height gauge, droop gauge, and a camber gauge...would it be worth it to get 140 dollar Hudy Set-up board???

The setup boards are nowhere near $140, in fact, you can get the ultimate setup system for cheaper than that... Order the stuff directly from Hudy's website, and you'll get the best prices. $140 for a board... whoever gave you that price is a moron.

go with the integy set up and youll save a lot of money. i think they are better than the hudy because they are alum and you can see the markings better.

then get the hudy set up board, and a tweak station by mip and youll be set.

I think it really depends on the type of car you have. If you have a pivot ball car then definatly you need a setup system but for a regular c-hub car what you have on a flat surface will do just fine and your money could be much better spent on other things. But if you decide to get one I have used and really like the Integy one the Hudy one is also nice but not worth the extra green.

I have a Hudy setup and it's defititely a nice luxury... I'm looking into the Integy tweak station now... If you have the camber guage and a way to set the toe in and out, I'd go for the tweak station first... I've heard great things about the Integy set-up station, but I've also heard that the Hudy has finer measuremeants... I know your close, let me know when you're going to be at one of the tracks and if I can make it I'll bring along the Hudy... I may be at Farmingdale friday... Don't know... If I have friday night off... Otherwise it's going to be about 3 weeks before I do... I may also go out to coram though... I'm torn between racing on road or off road this year...

I am going to try to go to Willis as soon as they open and maybe I can see you there...I really have no reason to go to raceway because I have no truck or buggy. Well hopefully you can make it to Willis...I will most likely be there often unless I have no ride. Thanks!!!
