Default Tire Truers

I'd like to know what tire truers you guys use for your 1/12th scale wheels? Specifically, if you have your own truer what brand it is, and how you would rate it? Also, what truer you would recommend for 1/12th (3 hole rear) and 1/10th TC wheels?

I have an old Serpent truer. It's basically a low end Hudy. If I were to buy one now I'd get the Ofna. It does virtually everything the HUDY does, but for around $150 or so less. Ofna makes adapters for both touring car and 1/12 scale wheels for the truer.

Trips: Is the Ofna tire truer an automatic truer like the Hudy? I really don't want an automatic truer, but at that price why not??? Can you suggest a source? Thanks.

Gepetto--

Yes it's an automatic, but at less than $250 it's a sweet deal. By the way, all the Hudy arbors fit it just in case Ofna doesn't have an arbor for your particular application you have another source.

you need way higher gear ratio for mod motor. we run a 15T at 24/25 to 100 spur gear with 6 cells.

Default Comments on the 12M

Any comments on the Corally 12M? I'm thinking about getting one for carpet. Also looked at Associated, CRC, and Speed Merchant. Any strong feelings?

Default RC12L3 Bulkheads

What are they made from? Are they plastic and if so is there an upgrade to alloy bulkheads?
Thanks

RacerTex: I came very close to buying the Corally 12M, but changed my mind at the last minute. I was concerned about the availability of parts, and the proprietary wheels used on the Corally car. I would need to special order any broken parts, and stockpile extra wheels in the event of a chunk, since my LHS doesn't carry the Corally wheels. Another concern for me was support. I contacted Corally, but at this point they do not have any setup information for the the 12M. This would mean that I would be on my own in determining what setup would be required for this car.

I ended up trading my new XXX-S for a new SpeedMerchant. On the SpeedMerhcant about 85% of the parts are Associated, and the wheels are easy to find. These same advantages apply to the Carpet Knife.

It is quite easy to order Corally parts via the internet ( http://www.rccarinternational.com ), and the wheels and espacially the tires glued to the rims are quite cheap. I think thats an advantage of the Corally cars, but after all I run an Associated. But to get the right tires for Associated is not so easy for me and they are very expensive. Do you have a source where to buy JACO cheap via the internet?
About the 12M: we had some serious discussion obout this car recently but ended in ordering the old G3. This car is a proven design and has (allways in 6 cell modified format, dont have any ideas about 4 cell racing) some advantages over the Associated. With the 12M Corally wanted to improve especially the asphalt/outdoor performance, wich is not an issue here. Last but not least until now there is no 6 cell carbon fibre saddle pack version available.
This are all just my personal opinions, but I still would go for the CRC if running 4 cell.
I heard about a class raced in Japan: 6-cell stick packs. Does anybody know something about it? Does anybody have mor info on the recently held Japanese 1/12 national championship?

Drifter: Corally USA (in Florida) would probably be a good source here in the US for Corally parts. The problem is, that would require at least a 3 day wait for replacement parts. On a race day that would be frustrating. Concerning the foam mounted wheels, I've only raced on carpet, and TRC or Proline/Jaco are the choice. Everyone seems to go with the Jaco purple fronts and grey or white rears.

4 cell 1/12th is what I was thinking of. I have not seen a 1/12th car run with 6 cells in it. Like you, I recommend the Carpet Knife also. I found it to be a great car when I first started racing 1/12th.
