Actually just talked to someone who used an Integy station. He says it's a newer model and it is better than the old one. I haven't used either system so I don't have experience. He said it felt the same as setting his car up on his Hudy. He still said he liked the Hudy better anyway. As I'm sure most ppl would say anyway based on name.

For quality & precision : HUDY.

You get what you paid for.

Honestly the price isn't that much different

Default Hudy/Integy comparison

I own a new Hudy and a recent Integy (aluminum arms) model. The only measurement that did not agree when I compared measurements on the same car was toe angle. The Hudy has higher accuracy ( the Integy was up to 1/2 a degree off).

The Integy has the vertical flat bar for measuring caster angle, which the Hudy does not have in its set up system.

I am no expert with these systems, that is what I found last week.

I agree - the Hudy doesn't have the castor bar so it's somewhat hard to do castor. Regardless compared to the ones I've seen people use the Hudy is way more accurate. I just don't fancy $400 for a tire truer so I settled for Integy's truer for $180.

Default Hudy station

I ran the cars yesterday, and I was very suprised in the way all three cars handled.
Very happy with the new set-up with the Hudy station.
Might just keep the Integy for quick track checks, and keep the Hudy in the shop at home. Unless of course I find another good deal on a second Hudy.

On the subject of tire truers, is there really a difference between the 400 and 180 buck ones. I would think there should be. If there is what are the differences?

^^^If your talking about the Automatic Tire Trues from Hudy and Integy this is what I heard when I asked a driver for Xray: Both are great, the Hudy just has a stronger motor and better cutting bit (carbide) BUT one can use the Hudy carbide cutting bit on the Integy also. Though, take it with a grain of salt, as he is sponsored by Xray.
