The Autotruecut truer is good, I've used it myself.
Well I have the Team Truecut (manual feed) $130 one, and it is great.

Brian, I can't imagine your cut being any better than mine because yours is manual also. The thing I like about the manual ones is that if you are in a pinch and need to do some deep cuts, you can go do a slow cut, where the Integy autotruecut's slowest setting is too fast to do a deep cut. The manual one is just as good (if you are willing to turn a nob alot...haha ) as the automatic ones. I don't think saying that "anything under $150 is trash" is correct.

Just my opinion,
Kevin

Thumbs up

I bought the Integy TrueCut tire lathe also, and I've used it to true 1/12th foams (Hudy Arbor), and 1/10th touring foams (Integy Arbor) and it works great. The motor is very strong and will accomodate deep cuts (althought I don't recommend that practice). I've also used it to actually cut Proline foam tire/wheels from 28mm to 24mm without any problems.

Dude you can't beat the integy unit if you tried, I mean C'Mon HUDY $250 for a truer that uses a 540 motor??? That's all I have ever seen in those things!!! The Truecut uses the same motor that powered my starterboxes it's like a 750 or something and it will easily cut thru foam so deep that would fry your precious hudy's motor!!!!!

Has anybody tried the Integy 12th scale arbor? I use the 10th scale Integy arbor and it's great.

I've also heard a lot of positive feedback on this arbor from RC4less:

Yeah, I have heard of people pre-scuffing them. I personally never have done it myself though.

Integy has a new truer for just about $200, also.
You must mean the Hudy Universal not the Ultimate. I too have the Universal and I like it a lot. Well worth it. Just my .02

24601 - I'm not much into the pictures on the internet thing. Since I've been racing so long I have piles of parts laying around. I used a fiberglass rear axle because its straighter than the supplied steel one, carefully removed the diff collar then mounted a spur gear (120 tooth 64p) to an old 1/12 left side hub (2 hole variety) and then about a 30 tooth pinion on the drive motor. This replaces the belt drive - no slipping and less side load on the bearing. Then I mounted another 1/12 left side hub on the other end. Use the supplied Cobra arbor for fronts. One more tip - use a 3/16 by 5/16 bearing in the wheel rather than the washer supplied by Cobra, you'll get a truer front that way.

Kevin,

I have seen a pretty rough cut come from that truer that wasn't very old. It also lacks a depth gauge, which is a hassle if you are a racer and don't run your foams from the box diameter.

Forty6, yes I meant the universal .

Brian,

The rough cut could have been a dull bit, but the roughness always wears out after about 3 minutes of a hard run.

I have used one with a depth gague also and it gives you an idea of what you are cutting to, but it isn't accurate enough! If you are going to true tires, you need a caliper anyways, so that is how I do it. You really don't need the depth gague, but I admit that it is nice to have. I don't know many people that run out of the box diameter!
