Perfect for a pan car, but a bit on the pricy side.

This is awsome, Do you think this works for Off-Road also, Short course truck, 1/10 scale buggies, 1/8 scale even?

I'd be standing in line Brian.

Right now Brandon's board is winning. Could have CRC and Slapmaster pasted across it for the Carpet Nats. Wonder if it could have rollouts for both 1/12th and WGT on the one board?

I looked into making them about a year ago. I have about $1000 worth of prototypes and materials sitting in the shop. The problem was I could never work it out where the final product wouldn't retail for around $200.



Here is a solid carbon fiber pit board I made for Donny Lia. The logos are engraved and paint filled. It turned out really cool but cost more to make than I charged him. I AM NOT TAKING ORDERS AND THESE ARE NOT FOR SALE!

So what's wrong with that? LOL

Maybe a roll out calculator routed into the front right corner with a flush touch top?

I have one of the small Hudy boards, no alignment sticker. Some racers live and die by their sticker, but I don't see the need. I have a triangular ruler that I measure track width with, lay it on the set up board and place the car on the center holes for side/side balance. Works for me.

Any more, I only use the set up board for checking ride height, pod droop and just generally a place to prep the car. Dumper scared me for life, so the camber gauge rarely comes out anymore.

I see the Hudy board with the tweak bar built into it. That seems like a very cleaver idea. What's keep that from dominating the market? If I didn't have my old Delta tweak board, I would probably look at that Hudy board. But I can't get my Delta to wear out.

Beautiful work Troy!

What thickness c/f do you guys reckon a board would need to be so that it was stiff enough to stay flat and not warp?

There is no better all-in-one tweak board than this one:
http://www.unitytool.com/tweakboard/instructions.html

I had the Hudy Ultimate Tweak Station, and I sold it to get this one. Nothing beats it.

My bad. I thought you were talking about tweakboards, but you're actually talking about setup boards.

Gonzo, I'm interested in this though, do you think it will work with off-road also, because it looks kinda universal?

I feel most comfortable with 3mm and up. The ones I have made out of 3mm and 1/8th inch are still flat after 1.5 years. I use only quasi-isotropic material with a plain weave top and bottom layer (same stuff as RC chassis). The prototypes I have made with twill were warped as soon as I cut them.

Default Thread jack warning

What have you guys found to be the cheapest, but still affective setup board?

I went to tap plastic about a year ago about bought a 2'x2' piece of 1/4" plastic. It was about $25 is I remember right. It seems to do a good job.

I don't know if it will work with off-road because the parts that line up to the wheels to measure camber are only about 3" high.

I just did a quick search on a website called Dragon Plate. I found c/f with a polypropolene honeycomb core 12x18" @ .25" thick for $219

c/f with a nomex core, same size, $180

c/f w/ foam core, $140.

That's pretty serious stuff.

There used to be the little airplane company just up the street called Boeing. They use to have a surplus lot one could rummage through. But I would suspect that I would find a gold brick before I could find any of that honeycomb material.

Bob Stormer used to travel with one of his kitchen cabinet doors. I think it still had the knob on it.
