Who makes the best tweak station?
 
Give me your opinion on who you think makes the best tweak station for the dollar.

I have the mip one now and it has been pretty good but since I have had it for like 3 years and it is wearing out I am also in the market for a new one.

http://www.teamirsrc.com/tweak.html looks like a very nice but $$$ tweak board.

I just use a flat surface and an exacto to eyeball my tweak. Not perfect but it's free. :smile:

I have been using the Integy Laser tweak board and it is very good and easy to use.:nod: :nod: :D . All you do is just use the laser to line the other side of the board up. Speedtech RC has them.

The MIP is a fine tweak board for a very reasonable price.

I prefer the ones from the U.S. mint. They come 50 to a pack(commonly known as pennies; can also be replaced with nickels, dimes and quarters). The only other item needed is a sharp knife(ex. xacto).

For those that don't know this method you put a penny near the top of both front tires in the same location on each side. You then slowly lift the front of the car with a sharp knife and the first penny that falls indicates that side to be light. You then adjust untill both pennies fall at the same time. This works extremely well with any 2 wheel drive vehicle especially 12th scale.

In many cases I've found it to be more accurate than the MIP station and I trust it so much I sold my MIP station several years ago because I quit using it.

Do you tweak your 12th scale only testing the front? What about the rear?

Doesn't work so well for touring cars though Ryan :) Integy works great for TC's. Ryan's method is perfect for anything that's 2wd.

Who makes the best tweak station?
 
Guys;

I have the Integy Laser tweak station and it does a excellent job.

My only complaint would be of the Bubble Vial for leveling. Even with the newest version it is almost impossible to find center. I've been using a separate machinist level to set-up the tweak station before placing my Car(s) on it.

Wow ... I have the integy one and I hate it... its laying in the basement.... if any one wants it PM me.
