Mushroom didn't two weeks ago

You also need to be careful and double check when ordering, the "new" ultimate version (according to hudy website) now includes the cheaper (spirit level style) tweak station, but has kept the same part number.

http://www.hudy.net/xhudy/products/p...8fbecddabad5c6

Check second paragraph, talk about how much better the tweak station is opposed to bubble versions and then last line

Note:
This set does not include the #107901 HUDY Tweak Station for 1/10 & 1/12 On-road Cars anymore. Instead of that the #107904 HUDY Quick-Tweak Station (without the alu carry case) is included.


Not a problem per se, but you might be pissed off if you pay full tote $400 US and then don't get what you thought you were going to.

Between these Hudy's tweak stations of 107901 and 107904, which one is better / easier in terms of measuring the car's tweak ?

The bubble version is a little harder to get right, but easier to set up as you don't need to use the stations - as I understand it.

You ideally need a very flat (level) surface, where as the other one is less fussy.

Just purchased my first onroad car. Just a $250 experiment really. I thought I could use my hudy off-road setup station and just learned they are completely different. Is there a way to get the off-road station to work with buying a new toe plate or other droop blocks etc? Can you setup an onroad car effectively without one? Didn't realize this experiment may cost me more than I thought thx in advance

Can I use an off-road setup station with an onroad toe plate? What parts would one need? Wondering if the camber and toe could be adjusted with no setup blocks by just having the roller hang at its natural position (settled like at ride height) after adjusting ride height with wheels on before putting on the rack? Or perhaps getting taller setup blocks? Thx

I have used the Hudy one that belong to a friend but I brought one of yeah Racing and love it. Very impress with the quality compare to the Hudy and it is the color of my car hop up parts.

No unfortunately not. The Arrowmax onroad setup stations are very reasonably priced. Second hand ones frequently pop up on here and ebay too so a bargin can be had if you are a little patient. I picked up my HUDY 1/8 onroad kit on here for $100 hardly used!

I have worn out my HUDY measurement plate on my setup station. Is there a better direct replacement part other than the HUDY unit? Figured i'd ask before picking up the $45 replacement.

More importantly, hopefully a replacement that has better markings. 10/20/30/40 markers. Hudy, in its infinite design omitted the 20/30 line markers. If I am going to replace - prefer something that has better markings.

I think the best one is Team Magic setup station.

BTW, Hudy setup station is NOT the original. Hudy is a copy and change the shape of the true original. If you are old enough and run 1/8 onraod should know what I am talking about. Got to give credit to the original designer here...

I wondered the same too. The HUDY one I have has worn out a bit too.
