Default Need Setup Gauges

I am looking for some setup gauges for a 1/10scale touring sedan, I really dont want to spend over $70 for them so anyone know if a good system for that price or under?

so far I have seen the PMB for $65 and the Integy for $58

I have the Integy purple/blue aluminum setup guages for about 5 years now....still work like its brand new. It is no Hudy ultimate setup guages comes with a fancy aluminum case....I think it was sub $60.....it does the job.

Don't forget to get the setup blocks, droop guage and the ride height guages....for those blocks, I think HUDY are the best.....and I think Dynamite makes the copies of those blocks/guages for a little less.

One piece of advise....if you can afford a little bit more, buy the 1/8th scale setup blocks and droop guage instead of the 1/10th....also, buy the 1/8th setup board instead of 1/10th....bigger is always better, and it works on both 1/8th and 1/10th just incase 1 day you will run 1/8th, then you don't have to buy another set of board and blocks.........but for the setup guages, if you are running 200mm or 190mm TC, then you MUST be the 1/10th scale instead of 1/8th....

ok yeah i was looking at the PMB but saw that some people say they arent cut perfectly and mmeasurements are hard to make, while I have found the integy one for cheap as well.


also I am most likely never gonna go to 1/8th on road, I have a nice touring car for the road and a revo for the dirt, and I will just race those two

The old style Integy ones will work fine for you. The new style integy "gravity system" is worthless unless you have a perfectly level setup board. I have been looking for a new setup "setup" myself. I have been looking at the new Team Magic stuff. Ive heard some pretty good stuff about it.

Oops, I didnt see the "under $70" part. The Team Magic ones are pretty pricey, a little over $100.

Does anyone know what the difference between the 2 team magic systems are? One says 4mm and the other says 8-32.

What does this mean?

Thanks

I am about 99% sure that the 4mm ones are for what we in the USA would call imported cars. Mugen, Kyosho, Xray etc. Domestic cars such as Associated, Losi use the 8-32 threads on the wheels.

You can make it 100%......those are the wheel nuts threads for cars like AE/Losi (8/32) and cars like Kyosho/Mugen/Serpent/Xray (4mm).

i might go with the old integy system. let me ask this what would be a good set up system for someone that cant spend alot of money right now & need one. or is it that much better to wait & spend the money on the hudy if that is really needed. the pmb,integy,speedmind & team magic they all look good too lol
