Default CRC tire truer experience?

Does any know anything about this tire truer. If not has any one had experience with anything but the Hudy one?

Did some reseach this truer is the Ofna Truer. I watch some YouTube videos. It looks pretty good:

It is more than what he said. I have use the CRC bit really good carbide bit.

This truer is very similar to the HUDY truer. Have both and can't say one is a lot better than the other.
If cost is important, get the CRC. It performs as good as the HUDY.

A truer is only as good as the person using it.

manual truers work just as good, if you have experience.

I can also recommend the 3racing fully automatic truer. It has a bay in the bottom for 2 x 2s lipo stick packs for full freedom and is under $300 but they are hard to find right now.
They are also sold under the Yokomo brand as well.

The that is out for me. Tires are too expensive to mess them up.

A couple guys who race at SCS have this one. It's pretty cool but you have to buy the cutter, arbor and the computer cable separately.

Software updates, custom profiles and controlling the truer from your laptop.

I'm considering buying one but have only seen it in action and talked to the owner of one.
