Default Best setup board

Currently I use the Hudy setup board for checking ride height and front toe settings on my WGT.

Any opinions on better options for a setup board (with lines) out there?

Thanks.

Bill

There's no other like the Hudy but if you're looking to save some cash Integy have one as well. If you already own the Hudy then you're wasting bandwith posting on here

While agree that the Hudy board is as good as it gets.

If you are looking for something a lot lighter to haul back and forth to the track, the Tamiya Setting Board is a decent alternative.

Yes, a light weight board would be very desireable. Carbon fiber would be kewl.

But reference lines and metric width dimensions are an absolute need. Could solve that with a Hudy decal though.

Cost for the right board is probably not a significant issue.

Who makes custom setup boards these days? Tres?

Never heard of the unity tools setup board have you??
Perfect for a pan car, but a bit on the pricy side.

Actually, I have two Hudy setup boards. One stays at home.

Just want something really light for taking to the track.

Yes, wasn't thinking about the Unity setup station.

OK, now I want that AND the light board. LOL

If you can find it the tamiya board should be pretty light - made from aluminium.

3racing make a nice graphite setup board but no line markings - not sure if you could get a decal to cover it

You can't go wrong with Brandon's stuff, I put my Hudy board away after I got one from Brandon.

guys as U can see I am from australia and I tell ya what I paid the postage and nothing was a problem for the man... Get any design u want and he will let u know what he can and cant do..... but no way will I buy a hudy or integy board after using this one.... I had also got the setup wheels and droop plus ride height gauges. Oh and I got a car stand and it has a shock building setup in the stand aswell...

Just abit more info for you as he looked after me to the other side of the world I am sure he can do it for everyone .....

Hmmm .... maybe another product in the Slapmaster Tool line up?

The hollow honey comb c/f set up board with filled edges for the savvy weight conscious traveler?

I'll take one!! Though anyone who's seen me knows that I'm not weight conscious.
