Comment: Very easy and quick to use.After adjusting the tracking I drove the car for a couple of miles and then re checked it, no further adjustment was required.Accurate and consistent results!
This will easily pay for itself,garage charges, tyre wear etc etc.
Excellent product, very pleased!

Comment: I have quite literally been waiting all my driving and DIY car mechanic life for this!!

I take my car to a garage for two things. MOT and tracking. Now I dont need to listen to there rubbish about how hard tracking is for £40.

I cant believe just how easy it is to measure tracking!!

Did 3 cars in ten minutes. I 'tried' to do it wrong and 'break it' but you just cant it is as accurate as it claims. (To make it go one degree out i had to hold one end 10mm away from the wheel -- you just cant get it THAT wrong)

While they dont suggest it is for adjusting tracking I used this to adjust the tracking on a car that was a degree out VERY easily.

One car I have is very low.. 4 inches off the ground and it was quite possible to use this on such a low car

Also most people take a car for tracking when then KNOW there is a problem -- tyres worn, etc... the damage is already done.. This gives you the option to check more often to pre-empt any problems before expensive tyre wear

Worth every penny

Comment: Lets start by saying my original trade was a motor mechanic so i know what i am talking about, The Trackace kit is a simple yet brilliant piece of kit well thought out and designed though a bit fiddly to use at first.This kit is of use to those who are able to adjust their tracking, for those who just want to know if they need adjustment then you are better saving the money and simply putting the car into the garage for checking and adjustment - after all you can tell if the tracking is incorrect by simply looking at the tyre wear - If the inner edges of the front tyres are worn more than the outer edges then you are toeing out too much - vise-versa for toeing in - the outer edges of the front tyres will be worn more than the inner edges. After 18000 miles my tyres had slighty more wear on the inner edges so i knew i was toeing out a tad too much - i guessed about 10 minutes too much. (minutes are fractions of a degree) Therefore i had an informed idea of what i expected the Trackace to indicate. Setting up the Trackace was easy though i thought the distance measure from the front right wheel to the laser unit using the mirror bar as the measuring tool a little confusing in the instructions - perhaps an indicator where the mirror bar and the laser unit meet should be marked by a different coloured piece of plastic or a sticker that indicates this is where the two pieces should but up together would be usefull. That said once the laser was in position i found the calibration procedure a piece of cake - once zeroed i removed the bar from the left wheel a couple of times and repositioned to confirm i had maintained a zero calibration -It had and was spot on every time, I was now confident it was set up properly. Repositioning the bar to the right wheel and adjusting the mirror to reflect the laser beam back to the laser unit was simple and produced an indication of 15 minutes toe out, close to my estimation, I checked this a few times and recorded the same reading each time. Im impressed. I adjusted my toe angle to my specification and checked twice from the start to confirm their were no annomolies - there wasnt so i am confident this kit does what it says in the advert. A simple but impressive tool, robust enough for the home DIY and will last for years, this will save me money and as i have little confidence in garages taking care to accurately set up tracking I have the satisfaction of knowing i can do it myself and get it absolutly spot on. I have three cars and as wear takes its toll tracking will drift - an annual check will ensure i minimise tyre wear, save fuel from lowered rolling resistance and maintain predictable handling. What a stirling product, I hope my feedback is usefull to both Trackace and prospective customers. BTW I have no affiliation with Trackace indeed i was looking to purchase an old Dunlop tracking gauge but took a chance on this kit and Im very pleased i did - a satisfied customer.

Comment: Set up the unit on a part of Asda's carpark one sunday morning when I was out with my kitcar .It has a low front end but was still able to see the beam under the nose and in the sunny daylight . Anybody that has a trackday car or does motorsport should have this system so they can check and alter their tracking in an instant. Very good system ,excellent.

Comment: Bought one of these (though at a discount) a couple of weeks ago and delivery was amazingly quick.  Some of the plastics could be better quality and there's a bit of flex in the metal bars.  However that said for the home mechanic who wants to check/set up front wheel alignment this seems a good piece of kit.  Easy to use once you figure out the best way to do this for your car and for me gave repeatable readings within 1/6 of a degree.

For the money I haven't seen anything else comparable.

Comment: This is a great piece of kit for the home mechanic. I have tried all the DIY methods for checking wheel alignment over the years from curtain rods to bits of string, all of which are tedious and inaccurate. The Trackace is very easy to use and its accuracy is up there with the professional rigs. Even old optical gauges still sell for hundreds on ebay so this really is a good deal. Congratulations to all concerned for getting this to market.

Comment:
Product definately works, and once you get the hang of it takes about 5 minutes.  Flimsy plastic corrigated case is a disappointment - really needs a blow moulded one even if this pushes the price up.

Comment: Bought this after receiving the promotional e mail follows an interest in have one of these units.

arrived the next day, brilliant, this replaced a DIY laser and mirror I had made from diy components, and with a unilux optical hanging on the wall covered in dust made sense to get a professional bit of kit

very pleased with the simple basic concept, easy to equal up on the tyre  wall or rim

used it on 6 of my area club cars(classics) and have recommeded the Triumphs sports six club consider selling these from the club shop,

any improvement... my diy laser had a vertical line, and this is easier to aim at the target than the dot projection of the Trackace
but so far well impressed Thankyou

Comment: After buying this bit of kit, i tried it out on my car, my daughters car, and my van. All the vehicles have different size wheels, and the trackace worked first time on all 3 cars.Who ever invented this should of done it years ago. It would of made my life easier, so easy to use, i have already had my monies worth out of it. Very very good bit of kit. Please keep inventing.!!!!!

Comment: What a brilliant piece of kit. I have 6 cars in my family including a 'Limited Edition' MX5 that I'm currently restoring on which correct tracking is vital. This equipment will pay for itself within just two uses, so I will save loads of money! A super bit of kit for the DIY mechanic - easy to use and it works too. You should get one

Comment: I have just used my new Trackace on my S type Jag fitted with 18" wheels, I found it to be extremely easy to use and it worked a treat. This product is a real innovation and is a superb design and deserves to do well. This would be a superb addition to have in any garage.

Review Comment: What a brilliant piece of kit that will pay for itself within two uses. I am trying to sort out a steering issue on a P38 Range Rover and have needed to get the tracking checked, each time I swap a component over - I've got track rods, drag links, steering damper, ball joints and numerous bushes etc - that a lot of tracking checks at £40 a time!!.
A super bit of kit for the DIY mechanic - easy to use and it works a treat too so I don't have to drive around trying to find a garage / tyre fitters with time to do my tracking. It's done when I want.
Many thanks to Terry and Co' for developing such a superb bit of kit a 'workmate' for the 2010's.

Review Comment: 'does what it says on the tin', ordered one, delivered in record quick time and tried it out on a car today that was professionaly aligned a few days ago, Trackace read 0 degress 35 minutes, the 4-wheel alignment report claimed 0 degrees 36 minutes, not gonna get any closer than that.


Tried another couple of cars and both appear to be in the region expected so very pleased with that. Easy to setup and use, will come in very handy with our collection of classic cars.
