Contact www.kamikazetoysandhobbies.com for this truer. I just got my truer last week. Truing tires used to be a chore, now I do it for fun. The motor is so strong I can cut 5 mm off on an 1/8 rear tire in one pass. The motor doesn't even slow down to affect the cut nor does the bit and tire smoke at any time during the pass.

Sherman, use this truer right? if so, this thing works just as well with those that costs twice as much. I saw this truer in action. another hidden beauty of this is the simplicity less parts specially moving parts equals less chances of something that could go wrong.

Yes, EECHRIS USES THIS EXACT TRUER to cut his 1/8 scale tires, which the motor did not even got hot, it is actually asking for more, the OFNA team have been using this truer to cut the tires of the 1/7th scale DM 1's, the tire size of the DM 1's are twice as big as an 8th scale tires and it cuts thru the tires very easily.

The hack saw blade that comes with the OFNA TRUER cuts just fine, but when it gets dull you can upgrade it to a Hudy carbide bit which will stay sharp for as long as you can imagine.

+1. I also bought my OFNA truer from Kamikaze. I also bought the Hudy bit from Sam, and it cuts wonderfully. One of my friends has the Integy, and unlike the OFNA, he can't use the Hudy bit with the Integy.

I have the ofna and it's by far one of the best purchases i've made in on road rc racing.

I pull it out on the table when i arrive in the morning and literally everyone at the track uses it. It must have trued over 80 full sets of tires in 2 months and there's no slop, no heat , no slow down, etc..
the motor is plenty strong for 1/8.

I have the HARD tyre truers and havent had any issues with it.Works great semi automatic and very similar to hudy.
I can take 2/3mm off at a time with ease.
