i am thinking of buying a setup system...
i was visiting a friend tonight and he showed me his setup system..
but i cant find that model on internet.

it was all made of transparent plastic. the things you hook up on the wheeladapters. i forgot to ask.
looked like this http://www.acehardwarehobbies.com/2....pmbfixture.jpg

maybe someone can help me try to figure out what the name is on the system..

Hudy, miracle, team-magic something more?

And the street price won't rip a hole in your wallet either
Hey Dennis, that looks like a nice idea. Is that your design? Is there a bearing at the pivot point between the two plates?

I haven't seen them for sale anywhere yet. Any idea on street price?

I picked up that 'new' PMB one, and am far from impressed. First, the website makes it look like black aluminum. The one I got was white acrylic, and it wasn't cut very well, either. Hard to read markings too. I mean, it does it's job, but I would have been better off keeping the old Integy F-1 setup I had. I'll put it on Ebay for cheap (It did come with a large setup board, droop blocks, ride height gauge, and shock building tool) and get something else when my bonus comes in.

Yeah but the acrylic ones aren't as accurate. I own 3 Hudy acrylic systems for sedan, 235mm, and 1/8 scale. For camber, the system is far from perfect and the camber is not correct. Now I only use the Hudy for toe measurements and steering balance/travel and it does that quite well. I use a simple plastic gauge for setting camber and that guarantees that you will have even measurements left to right. I have tried a couple of the Hudy aluminum ones for 1/8 scale and they are much better with the bearings to ride on, more accurate fit, and less friction overall. I still find the camber off by at least 1/2 degree.

I got tired of the inaccuracy of the Hudy on my sedan and bought the cheaper Integy aluminum system and that thing works very well. The lines are a little fat but I can trust the setup to be even.

Now we move on to why I am in this thread at all... I want a better system and don't feel like "doubling down" with Hudy to buy their overpriced aluminum system when I have over $300 in ones I don't use. The Team Magic one looks decent and if I can get one cheap, I will pick one up. The concept of placing the pivot at the bottom looks sound and should yield accurate results, we'll see.

I used to use the clear Hudy setup system, but today I got my Team Magic in the mail and I must say it seems very innovative and precise!
