Default 2-in-1 Lathe, Truer

Hi I'm in the eletric rc car and wondering if there is such thing as a machine that can be use for both Lathe and Tire Truer. they seem to be very simular in design and how they works.

No, they mount very differently... I have both, I know... A comm lathe it much more precise than a tire truer is...

Where on LI are you???

I've been just running off road during the week or the occasional saturday I have off, I haven't had the time to race lately... Of course, Farmingdale... I'm trying to race On Road at Willis this year, but my job isn't cooperating... I can do friday nights, but most of the time I have to be to work at 6 AM on saturday, my days off rotate and I have weekends off every few months...

i havent heard of anything like that, but wouldnt if be nice if someone did make something like that? hehe..i bet hudy would

but thinking about it...ppl who uses a lathe runs electric cars and usually dont need a truer! ppl who uses a truer are gas racers and usually dont need a lathe!
