Default Is a complete setup system really necessary?

Is it? It's kinda hard to pull out almost 300 big ones to get the latest hudy all in one system. Is it worth the money?

What about those portable RMP setup tools? Do they do a good enough job of making adjustment on your car? Need some feedback from folks that have used both before...thx.

I would not get the HUDY just because it is over priced.
Get the Integy setup system for$75.00
The Hudy setup board Sticker $12.00 and get a piece of flat MDF from Home Depot for $3.75
and you just about have everything you will need.
Hope this helps

I was just going to get those rpm hand setup tools...but i'm not sure how good they work....I think I may just get either the integy one or the hudy's older' model...hehe

The new hudy all in one is over priced..but it does look good tho...don't integy make a tweak station as well?

That was the other thing I forgot the Mip tweak station for $30.00 it is worth the money.
The integy one is great but over priced for a laser.

Any brand will do the job, but having the latest hudy setup just compliments the car

youre right....it is the integy eagle brand. it is a nice set-up system at a much lower price......but, the hudy board seems to have more bling and maybe more complete than what i have.

Default Tweak Station

no one tweaks with the hobby knife technique anymore? rtypec taught me that..and it really helps. faster and more efficient in my book. (i appreciate you teaching me that rod! i still use that technique to this day. thanks man! )

altho the hudy setup station does come in that very PIMPY GANGSTER "im carrying 200 kilos of cocaine" in this aluminum case.

Just grab the older acrylic hudy system. It will pay for itself in time after you have gone thru a few kits

I reckon some people are unloading their old hudy system to get the new one, so be there to catch them when they fall from the sky.

I use the older hudy system and I see no reason why the newer one is better other than the bling. As for accuracy issues, this is very subjective.

ride height = steel ruler
camber = US$10 camber gauge (ok, my Mugen Seiki gauge is $18)
Droop = free gauge with CGM (and a few other kits too)
Tweak = steel ruler/hobby knife.
Caster = from the caster blocks.
Flat surface = a piece of perspex. US$10

Only thing else needed is steering throw symmetry but i always put my car on the track and compare the left/right turning radius anyway.

I don't boast, but I think I'm just as fast as some of the guys using the 'universal ultra super complete setup system from HUDY'.

I recommend a camber system that mounts in place of tyres... and a ride height gauge. Everything else is just wasting money AND it is slower to use AND it relies on precision, which may not always be perfect.

This is all you need to get compareable results when you want to check/change your setup.
