Default Yokomo YT-TSR and YT-TS3 tire truers

Anyone uses one of those? What do they think of it? Anyone know what the difference is between the two models? Do they come with the cutting bit? Are Hudy cutting bits compatible? And the killer question: how do they compare to the Hudy?

Built-in space for a pair of 2S batteries is a nice feature, I think, can just pick it up and leave...

Thumbs up

I picked up a TS3, includes standard wheel adaptor

It is a very slick unit, use this for track, leave Hudy at home for big jobs

Compatible with Hudy adaptors and bits also

Bolt on a CRC Carbide bit, install of few of last seasons 2S lipos, and you have a potent portable unit

Bears a more than passing resemblance to the 3Racing truers

Hmm, quite right! If they're clones, I wonder to which version the Yokomo is similar to...

You say standard wheel adaptor, you mean for 12th wheels? Does it do 10th WGT wheels too, it would I need to get another arbor?

The 3 comes with an adapter for standard offset wheels, ie; CRC, Jaco, etc, the 'r' comes with an adapter for Yokomo offset wheels(and Pro One). Both models are the same otherwise, and it is the 3 Racing V2 model. 3 Racing now have out a V3 model of this truer. The only place that the Hudy truer might be better, (besides costing twice as much), is the ability to true new WGT tires to 51mm in one pass. I have used both, own an Integy truer, and my next one will be the Yok/3 Racing hands down.

Is the V3 worth it over the Yokomo/3Racing V2, you'd say?

Go with the 3R v3, as the Yokomo vers is just a v2 model

and yes, WGT wheels use a different arbor, I use a 1/8 foam arbor for WGT, & Team Tamale adaptors for both 1/12 & 1/10

I'd say its a wash, the main difference between the V2 and V3 is the V3 can go down to 30mm diam. where as the V2 states 40mm. However, I seem to recall the markings go to 35mm on the V2.

Also, if you go with the 3R model, you will need to buy an adapter as well for whatever tires/wheels you are going to use with it.

With any of then, get the CRC carbide cutter. Be careful installing it, as it is very hard and brittle, it will break if you over tighten the set screw(DAMHIK)

You will also need to spent the time to zero out the cutter, then the markings on the feed will be accurate.*

*this is my biggest beef with my Integy truer, I cannot zero out the feed with the CRC cutter, other than that, its a good unit as well. Trued well over 2000 tires in the past 3 yrs, not an issue with it.

They mention things like improved PCB and gearbox, not sure if that's work it... On the other hand, the Yokomo YT-TS3 is 225 here, and the 3Rancing V3 is 250, not a huge difference, might as well get the newer one.

The shop is telling me the 3R comes with an adapter for 10th touring car wheels (nitro, I presume?), so yeah, I'll have to factor that in.

The Yokomo comes with an adapter for 12th scale foams, but since I want to do WGT foams as well, I might have to get an adapter with either one, so that'd be a wash.

I was thinking of using the cutter that comes with it, but definitely upgrade to a carbide one (my shop tells me both the CRC or Hudy fits them) when it'll get worn.

If I just have to add 5mm to whatever number I want, that's not the end of the world either, but I expect I'd play around with it to see I can make things line up right, for sure.

Thanks!

BSR also makes a really nice cutter bit. Even on an Integy truer, which doesn't have much power, a BSR equipped machine will cut tires down to race size in just one easy pass. The surface of the freshly cut tire comes out so smooth that it isn't necessary to use a paddle to smooth out the surface.....only to lighly round the corners. One of those BSR cutter bits will be my next purchase.
