QUOTE Just use a blank standard axle spare
Of course it then helps if you actually mount your wheels on this spare axle, one at a time.

Which means taking them off the original axle and presumably putting them back on it again afterwards. All a little bit fiddly and real opportunities to at least slacken and at worst damage the wheel hub.
I very occasionally use a Dremel equivalent, but only for a major grinding operation.
I wouldn't dream of using it for a fine levelling operation, because it IS more difficult to accurately trim both tyres separately and it is virtually impossible to know the car's final ground clearance unless the tyres are actually mounted on the car. But both methods have their place and all knowledge is useful - each to their favourite method.

YEs, 30,000 rpm at the tyre (equivalent to 90,000 rpm from a slot car motor!), not many rubbers will stay in place!
Use a variable speed model and don't exceed about 1/4 speed and all is well.
