I like it and I'll bet it works almost as well as the store bought models.

I have a magnetic one but it can't handle the heavy wheels and tires, especially the monster truck tires.

So I made one as well using an extra Revo hub and axle I had laying around. I trimmed off the parts where the pillow balls connect and the steering rod. Then mounted it to a piece of wood and clamp it in my vise. I'll take a photo - it's crude but seems pretty effective to me! It can handle my truggy tires and the biggest and heaviest monster truck tires I have.

OK here are the pix of my Frankenstein balancer - it's primitive but it works and cost me $0. The Road Rages in the picture bounced so much they were unusable - now that I balanced them they run smooth as a baby's a@#!!! LOL
