Today is your unlucky day...
I just finished setting up my car for tonight =
Broke down the station and packed it up about an hour ago

A freshly set up car is like a loaf of fresh baked bread...

Tell ya what I'll do =
I'll slap it all together & take some pics tomorrow =
Check here tomorrow evening after the dinner hour and I should have them up -

Not bad for the price BUT you'll need to get some shims and washers =
I'll post the numbers for those also & take pics of how to string them on -

I've learned to live with mine...

But I only use it before a race...
So far =
Not during a race =
I haven't wrecked bad enough to warrant breaking it out...

Thanks Marv. I am also looking at the Yeah Racing setup station. It's only a few dollars more and looks more like the Hudy.

BTW, I worked on Sin City and we finished Sin City 2 in Feb. Look for it to be out this summer.
Cheers

Many complaints about the Yeah TOE GAUGE not fitting/sliding properly -

The toe gauge on the Integy fits/works underneath -

SWEET!!! Thanks for the headzup!

Cheers
Check back after dinner =
Should be up by then..

HPI 72111 Shim Set 3x5mm
Four M4 Washers

The number and size of the M3 shims needed per A frame piece will vary =
Placed them on the threaded end, then the A frame piece for the camber, then the M4 washer - with the FLAT side towards the large A frame piece =
This way the small A frame will swing freely -

The pieces don't come marked or matched =
I used a Sharpie oil paint pen =
So that the A frames go together the same way each time for each specific corner =
None of the identical parts are the same =
Each varies to some degree

This looks very similar to the integy setup station that I bought. However, the one I got doesn't have the slop that you mention.

But one question for you is, what car is wide enough to make use of that tow gauge? I find it useless until I find the shorter middle adapter.

The short bar on the toe gauge is for 1/12 and 1/10tc chassis, and the long one is for 1/10 sc trucks. The design is meant to slide back and forth to the side that you are working on. With all the different track widths that a car can be set up with from the factory, and changed by the racer, it is impossible to make a center bar that would fit every situation.

I didn't buy mine direct from Integy =
Mine could very well be a quality control reject =
Considering the source & the seller venue =
I wouldn't doubt it for a second...


BUT mine came complete =
I don't know what model you purchased...

Did you get the color you were looking for?

This is what I got. I ended forgetting about the "color" and went for practicality. I ended up getting this one since I wanted to be able to use it for all my cars (albeit requiring more adaptors). I was just using it today for my DEX210. Interestingly, the adaptor for the touring cars was the same for the DEX210. I'm pretty happy with the Integy and I have no tolerance issues needing "washers" or shims. I would say the quality is the same as the Hudy (and I used to be an engineer so you can surmise on my ability to judge quality). The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't come with "thumb" screws like the Hudy. So this means that I would have to use a screw driver to put them together. Of course, I can always buy the Hudy thumb screws; which I plan to do so.

Here is the Integy that I bought.

The "short" bar is still not short enough to measure tow for my 10th scale touring car or 12 scale. I need this length of bar:
