Negative. I bought mine new. It had two stands and two wheels. But it's all good. I have the Hudy setup stands.

And to expand on that detecting the tweak is less then half the problem, the issue once detected is removing it. I have checked a few Hudy setup boards and they are not dead flat. Mine is out between -015-.020 corner to corner. It works fine for a rough idea, but I would check with a straight edge, corner to corner before deaming it flat.

At PPD we've built 3 different tweak plates for TC5, Mi3, and Cyclone. We continue to get requests for new models. Problem is, a single use tool that is fairly expensive to build in limited quantities, has limitations.

That kicked off some out of the box thinking, and we have a multi use car stand (on or offroad), tool organizer, workstation, small parts storage, and tweak plate that not only detects, but removes minor tweak on a variety of chassis. This has not been done before because chassis are so different in shape its a difficult proposition. We've overcome that. So, you no longer have to sell the tweak plate with the car.

Here is a sneak peak of our soon to be released tool. Expect it's release sometime next week.

integy has a 1/10 tc touring set up kit that comes with four coner stands.

Ck their site under tools, setup tools.

The only other stuff you would need are ride height gauge and chassis droop/downstop guage.

and a board

I may mistaken but I do not think this has been stated yet. A tweak station is useful for making sure all 4 corners of your suspension are in the same plane.

Due to variances in distributed weight, setting shock collars the same left to right/ front to back will resulted in a tweaked setup. This happens even with the kit balanced equally left to right.
