Default .....to make life easier....

.....if i had the cash available , i'd pick-up the tool to remove the air bubbles from the newly rebuilt shocks that I'd just filled [and then i'd probably locate electroonic tire warmers -cup style - that's when i'd consider the Capricorn tool ]. Atleast someone's thinkin' bout the rc market-(remember the building of a better mouse trap ? ) One thing tends to lead to another (thing).

It would have been a must have product if it could also true all four tires down to the same size, at the same time ! Saucing tires is too easy a task to have a dedicated machine just for that...

You should get one regardless.... At least if you start sourcing your tyres on the mighty NTC3 with the ball diff from mars you might stand a chance of being competitive......

In my experience no heating is required of foams for best performance.

Tyre warmers are only used with rubber tyres as the heat allows the rubber poors to open up and the additives can then soak into the rubber.

Foam is already poorous and the additives soak in.

Is it worth it, well it is just like running a softer foam tyre.
