Should run against the grain of the teeth so they cut the foam away.

This Cobra Truer cuts like a barber, just having a problem getting the rubber out of my eyes & hair.
I hope running 62 & 63mm tires makes a difference.
I had some practice time today with some older tires. Now I will be using fresh cut tires for practice, qualifing, and mains. $$$$$$
I don't have any children to spend the money on, so more new tires on the way

I just bought an Integy truer also- replaces my Cobra trackside truer. Bgotori petty much hit the nail on the head. My Cobra had the micro adjuster and snakeskin cutter, and did an EXCELLENT job on touring car tires. It just did not cut my 1/8 tires the way I like. I've only made a few cuts with my Integy, but I LOVE the way it cuts. MUCH better than the Cobra.

BTW: anyone interested. I'm selling the Cobra trackside truer. It has the micro adjuster, smake skin cutter, standard cutter, arbors for TC tires, 1/8 tires, and 3 other arbors that I think fit 1/12 and pan tires. (not positive about the last 3 arbors, but the certainly don't fit anything I have).
