I've seen one go, has heaps of power, doesn't give a perfect cut though. The best tyre truer on the market would have to be the Hudy. www.hudy.net

Integy released this new tire truer not too long ago. Looks nice and is half the price of the Hudy. I've used the Hudy and it's definitely a nice piece of equipment but it's tough to say you're getting twice the truer.

This is good truer but the price is rather radiculous.
Is this truer gold plated or something?
If You are looking to spend this kind of money, You better go with something like this:

and make Your own home built portable truer

+1. I'm a poor college student, and it was either a Hudy truer, or a car and the Ofna truer. I went with the Ofna for the moment. I'm envious of the guys at the track with the Hudys, but the Ofna may be the best $100 I've spent in the hobby value wise.

I use the Integy auto tire truer in the case (not the scorpion. For $180 it does the job and I have no problem with it. You can adapt the Hudy motor and blade if you wish, but the best cut is to do small layers at a time. Some cut a chunk when in a hurry, but I true the night before testing.

A true poor college student has top-ramen every day and peanut butter sandwiches when he has a dollar to spare!

I started this hobby when I was in college (end of junior year about 2 years ago) I was able to semi afford it by replacing my booze and video game time by 1)not drinking anymore, 2) using boring video game time to pick up extra hours working for the campus computer techs. Man, college was fun...once I got into RC!

New to using tire truer integy has a drive motor direction button other than the obvious function of making the tire go in to different directions.When truing am i suppose to change tire direction for a more precise tire cut. Thanks

When truing the wheel must rotate towards you, when rounding the edges you want the wheel to spin away from you so that when you are using the sandpaper its easier and safer

I modded my Integy truer to fit a Hudy motor. The Integy motor is just not up to the task of taking 3mm cuts on a 1/8th tire. The Hudy motor does 3- 4mm effortessly.

check my details here....... post #9
