I like the set-up system too but what good is it if I can't get
a cal back? I've asked a couple of LHS and they have not been able to get an answer either ( Maryland/Virginia ).

Has any one ever seen the replacement parts? bearings, screws, washer the metal pieces? for sale?

I am using the hudy plastic.

A while back I tried to get a replacement triangle piece...not sucessful.

Keep in mind that Hudy is at the Snowbirds and then the Winter Nats...I would not expect to contact them till late Feb.

OK... Here is the latest....

SCREW HUDY SCREW SERPENT-USA!!!!!!!!

I will not be buying anything from a vendor that does not support it's own products....

Call the serpent-usa HELPLESS/USELESS desk to try and get some replacement hardware for my hudy ultimate setup board.

They DO NOT have/offer/make these parts, when asked what can I do to replace these I was told to but NEW plexi holders and uprights... at $35 per wheel KISS MY ASS!!!!!!!!!

I will go out and buy a new setup system before I put up with this
BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!!

When I talked to Serpent they said that even Hudy doesn't offer it or even list it anywhere.... It's really not worth the hassle, time or effort..... I'd rather deal with a full service vendor than a less than full service backing company like Serpent-USA/HUDY...

talk directly with hudy. serpent USA is the US distributor that carries products/parts from their normal lineup. the hardware you need for your setup board is not normally sold separately, and therefore serpent USA would not have access to them.

explain to hudy exactly the situation where you already tried serpent USA for the parts. but keep a cool head about it. emailing them and blasting them outright will not get you anywhere. goodluck with getting the parts you need.

guess you can go integy or yokomo. i've never seen the yokomo setup personally but IMO the integy is inferior to the hudy.

i'm looking at my setup system now and i'm pretty sure it uses metric hardware. you can probably match up something from kyosho if you want to continue using your hudy setup. the long allen grub screw, the allen cap screw, and allen regular screw should all be metric. the only problem in replacement part is the the little collar/spacer that's made of hudy's sprung steel so there would be no direct replacement if you wore these out. but you may be able to substitute these with other collar/spacers if you measure size of the collar.

And that's the piece I really need most of all...

IMO = in my opinion. so obviously based on MY opinion .

if you think the integy system is superior, that is fine: to each their own. but a buddy i used to run cars with had an integy and i have my hudy, and i used both to setup my V One RR at the time. when i used the integy to setup my car it would be off when i put it back onto the integy system (didnt crash the car, just running break-in). when i put my car on the hudy it would give me more accurate readings.

Slightly off topic: Schumacher has a carbon graphite made small setup system. In Denmark/europe, the price is approx. 16$, for weich you get a camber measure tool (1-2-3 degree) and a ride hight tool (one for off.road and one for on-road). For another 16$, you get setup wheels, including screws. So for 32 total, you can measure camber, ride hight, droop and toe.

It might not be as accurate as the Hudy/Integy systems, but it's far superior to the eye ball system and the price is nice for budget guys as me. And it dont take up as much space as the other types of systems.

Thanks for the K-thru-6 answer, it's been a tremendous help. I'm sure your objective evidence of WHY your OPINION is what it is will sway potential users the world over. Have you ever thought of going into marketing?
