Default HUDY 1/12 & 1/10 pan car setup station

Ok, am I going crazy? I thought I saw this on the Hudy site, and now I can't find it. Does anyone know if this is actually available, and which shops have them in stock.
Thanks,
Steve

I have not seen one from hudy for these cars, they do have a ride height gauge.

If you google search it you will find that Nexus Racing has it listed just not in stock at the moment. According to the Xray forums (link listed above) they should be available in the states now. Get your LHS to call RC America and see.

Nice work Super Sleuth!

Ashford is an excellent shop to deal with. I'll check back there in a week or so.

Mine came into my LHS today. I thought I would mention my initial thoughts.

A. Typical Hudy quality

B. A little pricey, even for Hudy. $106 with tax, and our shop offers 10% over cost when we special order. I seem to remember buying my 10th scale sedan set up station from Hudy for about $110, and it has at least twice as many parts.

C. The castor measurement method is less than optimal. For starters, theres nothing included in the kit to align the king pin with the etched marks, and the marks are 20-35 mm from the top of the king pin making it difficult / impossible to get an accurate reading. The marks are also only made in 2* increments. Not a deal breaker, but worth mentioning. Least impressive is the fact that even if you were able to accurately able to align the king pin for sighting, the marks are centered on the axle. This is perfect for sedans and pan cars running inline axles, but for a 12th scale that uses a trailing axle, it makes the marks nearly useless. If it were me, I would have included a clear lexan hand to attach to the axle. the hand would have 2-3 lines you could use to sight/align the king pin to, and then have a single hash at the top that would indicate the castor angle. I'm sure a ME would be able to come up with something better than what they have now.

All in all its a great. No slop in the components, accurate readings, very useful for toe, camber, and throw. Just not the way I will be measuring castor. I will keep my RPM gauge and use it to measure castor; much more accurate!
