Hudy

...the rest pale into insignificance in comparison (but they are a LOT cheaper)

Just to clear a point, these aren't absolutely necessary for drifting purposes, it's just another fancy gadget to go on the shelf with your automatic tyre truer, motor/cell zapper, comm lathe, cell matcher...etc. etc.

You can set your car up with a square, a wedge of wood/plastic, and a vernier caliper

See this thread http://rc-drift.com/rc-drift-forum/index.php?topic=2038.0 for a DIY camber gauge

...and for toe, draw 2 parallel lines on a flat piece of card (inside of cornflake packet) for 0° and 1° 2° etc. for alternative toe

...I have slaved over a hot mouse to bring you this

i'll second that. that corner is a mother of all corners. dad of all corners left her after the first corner was born, so you can hardly blame the mother of all corners for being unkind...
