Default Tire Truer for 1/12

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this thread. Hope it is.
Just wanted to get recommendations for a tire Truer for 1/12 pan car.
Debating between Hudy and CRC.
Is there a big difference other than price?
Are there any others that you would recommend?
Will be for personal use only.
Any help is appreciated.

Hudy. Used to make an inexpensive hand cranked truer. I liked it because you could control the speed of the cut. There hard to find these days. Integy makes one that's about the cost of the hudy.works great .

Yep, friend and I share one of the manual Hudy truers. Not as nice as that one! Even older. But love it...like the feel of shaving foam for some reason.

CRC sells the old Ofna truer as theirs now. It works great and I really dont see an advantage the Hudy has over this one. https://www.teamcrc.com/crc/modules....prodID=7719719

I have the 3Racing 2014 Version 3 truer (Also same as the Yokomo) with a CRC bit and it works very well for me.

The switch for the automatic return did break on me once but I was able to find parts to replace it. I would still recommend it if price is a factor.

I have owned the OFNA manual truer previously and although it works the 3Racing is much sturdier in design.

Personally I think it's the arbor and cutting bit that matters the most, for whatever you get.

Thanks for the inputs,

I was actually looking for the manual hand crank Hudy, but could not find one,
Sold mine back early 2000's when my son stopped running 1/8 scales..
Now I'm back running 1/12 and possibly 1/8 and regretting why I sold it.

Let me do more research on the CRC and decide.
I could use the extra $$$$ I can save for parts and tires.

For sure! The Hudy arbor I have now has .002" of runout, the 2 CRC's I tried were like .012". The CRC bit is probably the best but hear good things about the BSR.

Seriously, though, why are truers so expensive? I opened the old school Hudy manual and itís literally just a dc motor with an ac/dc.
