    Question How do you glue these stupid tires ?

    Bouhouuuu

    I went home this we, took my batterie pack, my maxx, and glued the tires.
    I used some glue I use for my plastic kit.
    I let the tire/rim/glu dry for the night.

    on the first try in the morning, I pulled a monster wheelie. greaaaaat.
    but the more I was driving, the less it would do it.

    and finally, I saw the rim spinning like crasy in the tire
    what kind of glue do you use?

    thanks

    Most people recommend CA it seems but I used some crazy glue and that seems to be working fine for me.

    I used tire glue(ca glue with a rubber additive). Seems to work really well.

    i used superglue, but now if i ever want to get the rear rims off it will be very difficult. but it looks like my BL monster is doing a good job of getting them apart

    you might want to refrain from the vulgar intent in the title. mods go crazy on stuff like that. its a "g" rated forum.

    If you use anything other than CA or similar, you'll be hating life. At some point, a lesser glue with let go, leaving you with a nasty mess to clean up before you re-glue with the correct adhesive. Just pick up some Zap medium or thick CA, you'll be all set. Unless you're using beadlock rims, r/c wheels and tires are a one time affair. Some people get creative and remove tires from rims, but I've never seen a truly "easy" way to do this.
