[QUOTE=rmdhawaii]I just bought the Hudy Excellent Tire Truer w/arbor. OMG. I think I'm going to be sick.... Excuse me, I'll be right back...[HTML]

I would say, that this is my first reluctant R/C purchase. It it were $200-300, it wouldn't be so bad. But $500! [PHP]


i wish the hudy truer was that cheap in australia
here we have to pay around the $800-$900 mark to get that type of quality
thats why i settled for the eagle racing truer for $300-$400.
i can spend more on my car instead

No it seems to be more predictable at the front. The droop setting is more deffinate

I used an alum front sway bar holder on my 710 and it worked well. It's a little more precise and consistant. It also does not allow any flex. The only issue I had was that it could bind the suspension if it does not fit correctly. When you rotate the cams it can bind the hinge pins. Just make sure it works right after you set the droop and tighten everything down. I had to do some modifying to get mine to work right on my 710.

Try some Malox or Immodium.

You should find someone that has another truer so you can try it. Otherwise you won't be able to fully appreciate the Hudy.

Uh, except . . .
Yeah right... for today maybe. Face it, you are addicted. The first step to recovery is admitting your addiction.

I use them...the reason why i do is because the droop set screw sits on metal instead of plastic......in a hard collision or when is comes to wear its less likely the aluminum fail before the plastic there is no additonal tuning features that i have noticed

The car is easy to build. Trust me. Also, go to my Web site and go through the build tips. It has almost everything you need to know. In the links section, you will find a link to the K Factory Racing Web site. If you pick up the car and have any problems, just come back here and we can help you out.

GQ Tires came today and I'm starting to understand why the wheels are so durable. Check out the wheel design.

NICE! The spokes are thicker in general compare to other spoked wheels. Also check out the edge of the wheel on the backside, the edge is chamfered.

Sweet! That should take care of some of that front shock end cap scraping that normally occurs with standard wheels. We'll see how they perform next weekend.
