Default Integy setup station

Any seen or own this (new?) Integy setup station? Seems like it might be a nice Hudy alternative. Full ball bearing, aluminum toe plate:

It seems the toe plate goes UNDER the chassis... I would love for somebody to clue me in to one good reason that isn't the stupidest design ever.

Body posts or shock towers will never be in the way regardless of chassis design. The jigs seem to hold the chassis quite high off the ground compared to other systems. I don't think the toe plate will be difficult to access or read in that position.

Right. It looks like it holds the car plenty high to get the toe plate under there. I'm sure it's not difficult, it's just not logical. Sometimes being different doesn't have any tangible advantages.

You'll find the general consensus is that for the money ($150?) The hudy piece is worth the money. I own one and it's a very nice tool.

Can you even get the Hudy new these days for $150? I would have loved to get one but I think they are a lot more now.

I have seen the older integy system at the track and for what you got it looked like a good deal. It came with a board and droop blocks. But I don't know if this new system comes with all of that. With that said I have a Hudy in 1/10 onroad and 1/8 offroad and soon a 1/10-1/12 pan. I wouldn't want anything else. But I only have the $150 option not the complete kit. I just wish I could find a Hudy tweak station. It seems like you can only buy it with the complete system.

They have the Professional Tweak Station which is only available with the all-in-one system, and the Quick Tweak:

I have seen that one but never known anyone that has used it. I'd hate to take a $90 gamble without seeing it.
