Default Xceed Set Up fixtures

Hey guys. Looking for feed back from anyone that HAS used or owns the Xceed set up fixtures. I know the quality and popularity of the Hudy fixtures I used to own a set for my sedan. Looking at getting some fixtures for my 1/8th. Anything you can share about them. Please only if you have used them.

I own a set of the XCEED set up system for my 1/8 GT.

Great product, top quality, and really nice. I also like that it comes with a case.

Xceed setup station works well I like it over the Hudy. The only problem i have found is setting the ride height with the setup station it's not always exact once you put tyres on.

I don't think i would go back to Hudy while the Xceed is available.

I owned a hudy setup before owning the Xceed setup for TC.

Works just as well, and I like how you can setup ride heights on the gauges (so typically I adjust mine to 60/62mm on the gauges).

Only issue I have with it is it sometimes is a pain to put together (the nuts and bearings don't always line up easily)

I have a set for touring car and love them. I like the one screw design. These gauges are assembled with only one screw as compared to my last set Team Magic which used two screws. With this design it is not a pain to store the gauges in the pouch and assemble when needed.
I've found the that the ride inserts (at least my gauges) are off by 2mm. With this in mine I set my front gauges to 61mm which gives me a 59mm tire reference and the rear gauges I set to the 6:00 position (no Number there) this would be 63mm which gives me a 61mm tire reference. At these settings my gauges are with in .2mm when the tires are placed on the car.
These Xceed gauges use a knurled thumb screw to attach the gauges to the car which are also included in the kit. The toe gauge is a little awkward; it sometimes hits my rear body post when sliding left and right. Hope this helps.


Pass you soon...

Xceed for 1/8 is nice because you can set the eccentric to match your tire size but the eccentric does not always sit square on the axle thus giving false camber and/or toe angles... For the price they are nice you just have to make sure they are on the axles square

The Exceed Toe gauge is quite brittle polycarbonate. Mine cracked at both ends while stored in its pocket/bag so have had to repair with tape. Also not so good with latest Serpent 977 as the toe gauge cut out does not fit over the rear body mount. and at the front the eccentrics mask the bottom camber adjusters.
