MK II Precision Hub Stands, Setup Your Car Like a Pro

We're very excited to be involved with the McLaren community. We engineer, design, and produce precision alignment tools in the USA. We've made products for customers ranging from Porsche Cup Cars to Radicals SR3s to Corvettes and everything in between. So we'd like to introduce our main product as well as some of it's attachments:

Description

Here at CSM Performance LLC we are dedicated to making the foremost Hub Stands, if you want best you’ve come to the right place. Our Mk II Precision Hub Stands are unrivaled in weight capacity, versatility, accuracy, and finish quality. The best way to create a product is to go directly to the users and that’s exactly what we’ve done. The Mk II Precision Hub Stands have been designed with the help of racers, mechanics, and engineers using modern Finite Element Analysis tools to optimize every aspect. By mounting directly to the wheel bearing hub they ensure the highest accuracy possible. Followed by slashing your alignment times compared to other methods and even eliminate the need for strings when used with our specially designed Laser Thrust Alignment System (LTAS).

We offer an exact fit wheeled Pelican™ Case, the best cases in the world, to ensure easy transportation. We exclusively CNC machine our components from billet aircraft grade aluminum at an ISO 9001 facility right here in the USA. We’ve integrated our proprietary Lock-A-Lug system which employs tapered Lug Washers to perfectly match any pattern from 5x100mm (5×3.937″) all the way to 5x130mm (5×5.118″). Need a set for 5/8″ lug studs? We can precision drill and chamfer an addition pattern on the Hub Mount Plate, see options. Our Hub Stands take advantage of Ball Transfer technology to create a virtually frictionless surface for extremely precise alignment measurements. We have even included a positional locking system to hold the Mk II Hub Stands in place when needed. We’re able to do all of this and retain a fine height adjustment system to match practically any vehicle. We also include all the needed tools to assemble and utilize the Mk II Stands. Every tool proudly comes from a Made in USA sources including Proto® and Bondhus®. Each component flawlessly fits together; The Mk II Precision Hub Stands are a true blend of perfect form and incredible function.

Need Centerlocks or any other requirement? Give us a call or send us an email, we can do almost any custom work!

What’s Included:
Four (4) Mk II Precision Hub Stands w/ Toe Bars
Proto® Wrenches
Bondhus® Allen Wrench Set

LTAS Description:
After having to go through the string alignment process over and over we decided that there had to be a better way. With customer input and tons of product trials we are excited to introduce our easy to use Laser Thrust Alignment System (LTAS). With our LTAS it literally take seconds to mount and read the Laser Grid Plate to find the thrust once our Precision Hub Stands are on. Now you can measure Front Toe wheel to wheel and set Front Thrust at the same time. Once the front is done you can set the rear by measuring to the Laser Lines. No more setting up, lugging around, or messing with strings.The Precision Laser utilizes a cross hair for easy alignment and positioning. The Laser Grid Plate conveniently features a measured grid for quick measurements.

We’ve had quite a few customers ask us how exactly the LTAS works as it is a new product on the market with nothing else like it! So, we’ve put together several examples and the steps to utilizing the LTAS.


Figure 1: LTAS System Overview

LTAS Instructions:
Step 1: Install the Toe Bars in the lowest possible position of both front Precision Hub Stands (PHS) and in the highest possible position of the rear PHS (same height as the hub).Install the Lasers onto the Toe Bars on the front PHS and the Laser Grid Plates on the Toe Bars on the rear PHS as outlined in the above figure with the supplied Thumb Screws. Turn on the Lasers in the first ON position (pendulum locked) and point them towards the Laser Grid Plates on the rear PHS until the center line (cross) is in the vertical center of the Laser Grid Plate.


Laser Grid Plate installed on PHS

Step 2: Utilize tape measures to measure and set the Toe at the Front of the Vehicle. While doing so ensure the position of the laser line center (cross) is the same measurement on both Laser Grid Plates (passenger and driver side). This sets the front wheels angularly aligned with the centerline of the vehicle (thrust). Your front toe and thrust have been set. See Figure 2 for visual.


Figure 2: Setting Front Thrust with LTAS
Step 3: Remove the Laser Grid Plates from the rear and utilize the Precision Scale to measure from the front of the rear PHS Toe Bar to the laser line and from the rear of the rear PHS Toe Bar to the laser line. To find the Toe at the rear wheel, add ½ the total Toe at the front (amount of the Toe at each front wheel) to the Toe measured with the Precision Ruler with the proper sign convention found below. See Figure 3 for visual. Since the Front Toe has been angularly aligned with the centerline of the vehicle (thrust), the Rear Thrust is also aligned since it is set off of the front (laser line), ensuring proper thrust angles throughout the vehicle.


Figure 3: Setting Rear Toe With LTAS

LTAS Guidelines and Examples:

When measuring Toe between the Toe Bars on either side use the following convention: Measurement between rear of Toe Bars minus (-) measurement between front of Toe Bars. This means that Toe In is a positive value and Toe Out is a negative value.

When measuring Toe between the Toe Bars and the Laser Line use the following convention: Measurement between Front of Toe Bar and the Laser Line minus (-) the measurement between the Rear of Toe Bar and the Laser Line. This means that Toe In is a positive value and Toe Out is a negative value as with above.

To convert the Toe relative to the laser line to the Toe relative to the center-line of the vehicle (Actual Toe) simply add the Rear Toe relative to the laser to ½ the Front Toe.

EXAMPLE 1: If a vehicle has 1/4” Total Toe In at the front then each front wheel has 1/8” of Toe In (Positive). Measuring from the rear driver Toe Bar (D) to the laser at the front and rear of the Toe Bar (D) results in the following measurements, 5” at the front and 5 ½” at the rear (I and J in Figure 12). This shows that relative to laser line, the rear wheel has a Toe Out of ½” (Negative) so –½” of Toe. To convert this from the Toe relative to the laser line to the Toe relative to the vehicle centerline (actual Toe) add the Toe values for the front and rear wheels.

1/8” (Positive, Front) + -1/2” (Negative, Rear) = -3/8” of Toe or 3/8” of Toe Out at the rear driver wheel.

EXAMPLE 2:
If a vehicle has 1/2” Total Toe Out at the front then each front wheel has 1/4” of Toe Out (negative). Measuring from the rear driver Toe Bar (D) to the laser at the front and rear of the Toe Bar (D) results in the following measurements, 4” at the front and 4 1/4” at the rear (I and J in Figure 12). This shows that relative to laser line, the rear wheel has a Toe Out of 1/4” (Negative) so –1/4” of Toe. To convert this from the Toe relative to the laser line to the Toe relative to the vehicle centerline (actual Toe) add the Toe values for the front and rear wheels.

-1/4” (Negative, Front) + -1/4” (Negative, Rear) = -1/2” of Toe or 1/2” of Toe Out at the rear driver wheel.

EXAMPLE 3: If a vehicle has 0” Total Toe at the front then each front wheel has 0” of Toe. Measuring from the rear driver Toe Bar (D) to the laser at the front and rear of the Toe Bar (D) results in the following measurements, 2 1/2” at the front and 2 1/4” at the rear (I and J in Figure 12). This shows that relative to laser line, the rear wheel has a Toe In of 1/4” (Positive) so 1/4” of Toe. To convert this from the Toe relative to the laser line to the Toe relative to the vehicle centerline (actual Toe) add the Toe values for the front and rear wheels.

0” (Front) + 1/4” (Positive, Rear) = 1/4” of Toe or 1/4” of Toe In at the rear driver wheel.

EXAMPLE 4:
If a vehicle has 1/4” Total Toe Out at the front then each front wheel has 1/8” of Toe Out (negative). Measuring from the rear driver Toe Bar (D) to the laser at the front and rear of the Toe Bar (D) results in the following measurements, 6 1/2” at the front and 6 1/2” at the rear (I and J in Figure 12). This shows that relative to laser line, the rear wheel has a Toe of 0” (Positive) so 0” of Toe. To convert this from the Toe relative to the laser line to the Toe relative to the vehicle centerline (actual Toe) add the Toe values for the front and rear wheels.

-1/8” (Front, Negative) + 0” (Rear) = -1/8” of Toe or 1/8” of Toe Out at the rear driver wheel.

EXAMPLE 5: If a vehicle has 3/4” Total Toe Out at the front then each front wheel has 3/8” of Toe Out (negative). Measuring from the rear driver Toe Bar (D) to the laser at the front and rear of the Toe Bar (D) results in the following measurements, 6” at the front and 6 1/2” at the rear (I and J in Figure 12). This shows that relative to laser line, the rear wheel has a Toe Out of 1/2” (negative) so -1/2” of Toe. To convert this from the Toe relative to the laser line to the Toe relative to the vehicle centerline (actual Toe) add the Toe values for the front and rear wheels.

-3/8” (Front, Negative) + -1/2” (Rear) = -7/8” of Toe or 7/8” of Toe Out at the rear driver wheel.

You can see that the LTAS greatly speeds up the alignment process as well as improves the total accuracy. This system paired with our new Mk II Precision Hub Stands is second to none when it comes to user-ability, versatility, and accuracy. If you’re looking to improve lap times and decrease alignment times you’ve come to the right place. Head over to our shop to check out all of our options.
