neither are NEEDED....but the 1/8 Offroad decal would be on my list if i was ordering...and could find it in stock somewhere....but ya....for a board go to Home depot or a hardware store and buy a sheet of melamine around 2'x2'....nothing worse then paying 43$ for a peice of 5$ malemine :lol:

when you travel 1600km across canada to a National event.....you tend to bring everything including the kitchen sink......and what if you wacked out a part and needed to replace something that would throw out the set-up....its common place to bring a station to the track imo...if its a local track your at ALL the time....maby not....but a station+board is Important imo on those big race's where ANYthing can happen. :nod:

You kidding me!?:weird:...ever checked your car after a big stack and seen how much it has changed:nod:. We always bring it and all the boys check their cars!!;)

OK, a national event I can see, you got me there.:cool:

With the amount of slop in nitro off road cars (more so with Losi) I think the station is over kill, not saying it is a bad thing, not putting anyone down that uses one, and dont take my opinion the wrong way. They are totally a kickass gaget if you have one. But, most people can get close enough with a 10 dollar camber guage. Hell, I use a old Helicopter pitch guage:p But then again, if I were running national events on a professional level I'd probably have a diferent opinion.

Its a PITA to set up and take down a station all the time. I made something recently that worked out AWESOME!

I got the spektrum deluxe hardshell case http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/26664

It turns out the spare foam block fits into the box on a T8bag perfectly http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/21366

so I made this

Makes it really convienient to take the setup jig to the track.

Any serious racer . I bring just about everything , never know if you need it .

Would a setup station really be a necessity even for the regular club racer?

I can certainly see why experts/pros would use one, but it just doesn't seem like such a priority for the club racer. Would putting my rig on a setup station make such a difference that I would go from a consistent 3rd placer to a winner? The only time I've ever seen that much a difference in my own performace is when I finally figure out the right set of tires for a particular track. Handling instantly becomes a night/day difference.

i'm not new but i am a club racer but i wanted to learn more about setup and I wanted to be able to make accurate adj. to tell what they do. I probably would do better with a nice 3 port rb s3 or something but buy a modded engine seems for fun to me lol. i definately see you point though thanks

It's simple in my book, if you have the money to invest in a setup station then do it. Since I am a poor college student I opted for the rpm monster gauge and it works fine. I have seen plenty of fast guys using it for their setup.
