Hudy Quick-Tweak Station

Hudy have released their Quick-Tweak Station that allows you to quickly and easily check and correct tweak on your race car to help ensure proper, consistent handling. Suitable for 1/10th and 1/12th on-road cars thanks to its unique adjustable base plate system, its adjustable threaded support feet allow for quick & easy leveling. Rugged and lightweight base plates are CNC-machined from strong yet lightweight aluminum and black-coated for durability and stylish looks. Strategically milled-out cavities in the base plates make this tweak station much lighter than other similar products on the market and both left and right sides are identically weighted for perfect balance. Areas around the precision spirit level in the pivoting base plate are milled out to allow easy viewing from any position and laser-engraved track-width markings (160-220mm) are precisely & accurately engraved on the base plates. The center axle is specially ground to be perfectly straight & level with ends additionally hand ground for precision fitment into the manually-selected precision ball-bearings that are pressed into the base plates. The ball-bearings are degreased and lightly oiled with AeroShell 12T fluid for ultra-free and smooth operation. The Hudy Quick Tweak Station comes in an exclusive aluminum carrying case with pre cut foam inserts to allow easy & safe storage.
