Default Which tire truer for foam on TC?

I'm in the process of getting my first Nitro Tourer and it seems that a lot of people run foam. Even for parking lots, it seems like foam is the way to go for most applications. Which tire truer is the best and which one would be good for using at parking lot races, etc.?

So far it seems like the Hudy ones are the best?

I have had 2 truers lately, both are Ofna's. The 1st I bought used for $75, it had a broken auto function, used it and it worked fine, manually for months. Then I ran into someone that was quitting racing, and I bought his perfect Ofna for $150, sold the broken one and ended up getting the 2nd one for $50.

Most truers will work on foams, the key is the cutting blade, I just picked up a Mico Carbide cutting tool for my ofna, and it cuts tires like they come out of the package.
