Default set up station 1/12th

Dont waste your money buying a set up station not needed, all the settings for a 1/12th can be done on the work bench with a nice flat surface, a ride height gauge and camber gauge cost washers.Not lots you can do with a modern link 1/12th car.

As said above but I would include balance points and tweak station (quarters and an xacto will work too).

There are ways to do setup without a station so as was mentioned it isn't necessary...but a station makes things sooooo much easier. I have a tendency to bang up my rims and have them warp so I don't like to use a camber gauge on the rim. Personally I use the Hudy setup station made for pan cars...very nice station but a bit pricey. I don't know of any that work on both pan car and TC.

Using a hudy setup station now. But to be hornest, spending 100 dollar on a setup station for just camber and toe... I don't think it is necessary..... I only get it that day because I had a really bad day and just wants to buy something to make me happy. lol Just tweak station, and the normal stuff like ride height guage, camber guage is all you need for the 1/12.

Same here...I have a Hudy pan car setup station; but, have never used it.

A setup board (with lines) and camber gauge handles everything.

Don't even use quarters on the front end anymore...Spin both front wheels and slowly lower the front of the chassis using an X-acto knife blade in the center. Adjust rear tweek screws until I get both fronts to touch down at the same time. Yes, I use some preload on the rear springs for all situations.

Just align to the lines on a setup board...simple!

Hudy decal on any setup board is great.

I don't even use the sticker side of my Hudy board...I find the sticker isn't very flat so it messes up my camber adjustments. I'll stick with my Hudy station

Bert,

You have too much heat and humidity in Hawaii for stickers to keep stuck amigo.

I hear you about them coming unstuck from the board. I replace mine about every other year.

If you are still after a TC, 1/12 station.

I'm cancelling my backordered setup station and continuing using camber gauges and setup board and saving some money

Oh it is still stuck...it's just I can feel the plastic taper a bit about 1/2" from the edges. Pretty much been like that since day 1 for me.
