Default Tweak stations

Been having a look around at tweak stations recently and have noticed that, typically, Hobbyking have a Trackstar job for spare change.....has anyone tried one? If so, any good?

Bar the Hudy one, is there any other bargain alternatives?

Best one I found was the laser versions, not as critical to get them level when setting them up. Intergy made them

Are they worth the outlay, or should I just stick with setup wheels and lifting the car on the centreline?

disagree im affraid, if you have one front shock 1mm longer than the other or more droop on one side the longer side will lift last, so you will adjust the opposite side to correct, but your not resolving the issue, only masking if via the lift method, on a tweak station, you are measuring the load on each wheel as the car sits on the track (granted your droop etc would still be wrong) pan car can still be same fixed many racers cars tweak quickly and easy on my station

Measure shock length and confirm even droop with the droop gauges, then you’re not masking anything surely?
