I asked the same question.
Only one thing to add, I ordered the integy system and was then contacted by the retailer , apparently they are being recalled , dont know why.

So now I getting the eagle racing one instead.

Cheers

The lastest HUDY one is excellent, it even has a tweak gauge.

If money is no problem, then the Hudy is the "ultimate" setup system. Personally, I use the Integy (Eagle Racing) one, which is a great value for its price.

I purchased a used Hudy Ultimate Set-Up off the for-sale thread. I don't know how much of a difference it makes, but I really enjoy setting up the car. I am very happy with it. You can pick them up for around $100 used. I didn't get a tweak station yet. I have read on here the MIP is great, and it's only about $25 used.

Default set up system

I have the old ultimate set up system with a MIP tweak station and I love them both. It is amazing to me when I try and "eyeball" a camber or toe number when I think I am very close I throw my car on the system and realize how far off I really am.

I picked up my Hudy system from a local guy off of this forum for 80.00 for all the gauges, board with decal, tweak station, Hudy droop gauge and blocks, plus a ride height gauge and balance stands.

In my opinion it is one of the best investments I've made to my hobby since now it is so easy to try a new setup without the worry of not being able to go back to your old one with ease. I find myself trying many new settings since it is so easy to bring it back to where it was if what you do throws it all off.

If you can afford one, get one. You will thank yourself.

well......

Hi Geoff,

I have bad news. Integy actually recalled their alignment station from us (apparently there was a problem) so that is out of stock at the moment.



<<<<thats a cut n paste of the email the retailer sent me.
Makes you wonder whats going on dont it

I use the Integy setup station 2 with an MIP tweak station. Good products good value for the dollar. Plus the leveling flatboard from integy is awesome.
