Default Hudy setup station

I've got a setup station on the way. It's the basic 1/8 offroad set, what all do I need for it? I know there's another top plate for truggy, is that a must have? Will the top plate that comes with it work on a truggy?

You will need the Truggy top plate for the Truggy, you will also need a flat surface to sit the setup station on. I use a 10mm thick piece of lexan to sit mine on. You can buy a Hudy board if you want but any flat surface does the job.

I'm not a truggy racer, buggy only, but I think my station came with the truggy plate.
It's way wider than my buggy, have to slide it over to the side your measuring on.
The tuggy plate works on buggies, maybe they just make only the truggy plate now???

The droop blocks and gauge are key for good setups. Using the oldschool shock length method is inconsistant and can only be set to a tolerance of +/- 2-3mm at the hub. Useing the droop gauges I can reliably get droop set to a repeatable tolerence of +/- 1mm.

If droop gets set differently than how you wanted it set, it can mask some of your other changes and really send you into tuner hell. The exactness of the gauge and blocks really helps prevent those errors.

A glass or ceramic cutting board from walmart makes for a nice flat surface. Never bothered with the Hudy decal.
