Default On road setup tools?

I am looking at getting a camber angle gauge and a metric & standard tool set. Anyone have any good sites or recommendations? Appreciate it.

Here is a suggestion. Your signature line shows winners circle. Contact Lee Muse as he can definitely help you out with that. IF for some reason that isn't possible do yourself a favor and get a good set of setup gauges. I have used the Team Magic and the Hudy tools and settled on the TM stuff. Nothing at all wrong with the Hudy gauges as well. If they are too pricey go ahead and look at the Integy gauges. Same thing with the hand tools. Try Titan tools at TMA (team marketing america). You can always source this stuff from Ashford Hobby as well. Robert @ Ashford is very experienced with onroad as well and can set you up with the stuff you need.

The best advice I can give you is buy the best tools you can. They work better and last longer. Good tools is always a very good investment in your racing plus good tools are always easier to sell if you ever get out of the hobby.

^appreciate all the info.

I have never purchased any tools or gauges like this before so I didn't know where to look.

I like the TM ones too, aluminum wont break, acurate, comes ina nice carrying pouch with everything u need, and! alot cheaer than the hudy setup.

only thing I have hudy is the droop and ride height gauges because I got them cheap on egay.

I also use the TM gauges love them. For hand tools I current use MIP but I prefer the EDS hand tools. I've got an EDS tuning screw driver and it's the toughest I've seen. I once pryed open a beer can with it And the screwdriver shows no damage what so ever.

Pass you soon...

i have the EDS allen drivers too, they are Hudy spring steel type and you need to work hard to strip them.
