Default Tweak station; Good to get?

I am getting (i believe) a Good deal on a MIP tweak station. Its brand new in package for $25 shipped. Is it worth Buying? Do I really need to spend the extra money on a Tweak station? Yes i Do race Competitively, in Expert stock/ expert 19turn.

it is cheaper than most tweak boards and the liquid in the vial is thin, so it is very accurate and sensitive to changes. you can use it for 1/12 cars too. I have had others where the liquid was to thick to register changes made.

The MIP one is nice. I have one, but rarley use it. I find it just as easy to use a wrench and adjust it that way.

The only downside to the MIP station is that the bubble is centered on the block that pivots, so when you are tweaking the back of the car, your front bumber will completely obscure the bubble.

I've never used a tweak station on a 1/12th scale. Best to use pennies on the front tires.

As far as if they are good or not... I use one, but a couple of the pros at my track do not. In fact, if you put their car on one it looks totally tweaked. The reason is, they set the tweak on the track, and the tweak board cannot compensate for the torque steer the TC3 has. This is most notable in mod. I've not yet mastered setting tweak on the track, but I'm getting there.
