This is the Hudy Universal Exclusive Set-Up System, and is intended for use with all 1/10 off road vehciles with 4.7mm wheel axles. This system supports both pin and hex drive type wheel adapters, and is used for super-precise measurement and setting of front/rear camber, toe, steering throw, and caster. Backlash-free, wobble-free mounting of the full ball-bearing equipped set-up stands (12 high-precision ball-bearings) provides ultra-smooth, ultra-precise movement and operation.
These Set-up stands are CNC-machined, hardcoated high-grade aluminum, while the toe/steering plate is CNC-machined from tough acrylic plastic. All the components feature precision engraving for instant, reliable readings. Includes handy set-up nuts for quick assembly/disassembly. Delivered in handy foam packing for comfortable and safe storage and transport.
NOTE: The toe plate included with the 1/10 off road setup system is not wide enough to fit 1/10 short course trucks. RC America recommends the HUDY 1/8 Upside Measure Plate (HUD108840) for 1/10 short course vehicles.

Just a heads-up for other buyers. On the box it says "Alu nuts included FREE"... Which you would assume would be the "Alu nuts" (their words) used to mount the camber plates onto the hubs of the car (108960), but they aren't. They are simply referring to the little mount screws that hold the 4 assemblies together. The kit does NOT include the thumb screws needed to actually use this thing with a buggy.
I called RC America and described what was advertised vs. what I got, and they didn't care one bit... Thanks for nothing, RC America, Xray, and Hudy.
Two words... Awesome&Pricey.
Incredibly well built and very easy to use. Instruction book is well written.
Note: You do need some blocks for the chassis to rest on while you make the camber/Toe changes. I did not buy the $50 partical board set up board. I just use the tool on a flat machine tabletop (I use a Delta table saw table) -
Accuracy to 1/2 degree (camber, caster, Toe....). You can watch the scales cahnge as you rotate the turnbuckles with a wrench. Makes setting up the car/trucks a clear, repeatable, documented process. I a=have also used the RPM plastic Camber/Toe tools... but not any more. I have both the 1/8 scale and 1/10 scale versions of this tool. I love them both.
The included nuts are just reqular HW store fare. Toss them. The nice Aluminim nuts that match the tool must be bought separately for ~$25. I agee with the previous poster, that the nice nuts shoujld have been included but only the regular HW store item.
Toe plate is too narrow for Stadium Truck as well. When I asked Hudy's customer service what I needed to make it work for ST they couldn't give me an answer. Not impressed.
Pricey but nicely built and accurate. The top plate will not work for a short course truck, truck is to wide, the 1/8 scale top plate will work with this kit and fits short course. Highly recommend the wheel nuts so not to scuff finish with serated nuts...
This Hudy set-up system IS expensive, but the quality is top notch. My kit did include the aluminum nuts for assembly, so all good there. I would recommend getting the Wheel nuts (HUD108960). You can use the nuts from your vehicle, but typically wheel nuts are serrated and considering the $$$ paid for this kit, it would suck to scuff up the finish on the aluminum uprights. The system works very well and I would definitely recommend it. Can you get by with a regular camber gauge and toe-in gauge? Sure, but this system is dead on and will last forever. If you typically don't mind spending money on quality tools, then this is a no brainer.
