that "blue lable" glue isnt very good, if your looking for a cheap alternative to expensive "rc grade" glue check out Loctite "professional liquid" it comes in a blue bottle with a cap that snaps and even has a cap that plugs the hole so you get zero leakage, and its under $5 for .71oz.

Unfortunately anodizing varies from batch to batch. Mine are slightly different front to rear as well .

Well I just confirmed with the warehouse that we have both "blue" and "gold" Bar Codes in stock. Both of those are very popular indoor compounds for indoor tracks. Gold seems to be the best on wet/damp conditions and Blue on the drier/grooved conditions.

Are greens not ideal for indoor drier conditions?

Greens work great indoor for certain conditions (mostly east coast), but 90% of the indoor "west coast" tracks use Gold and some blue.

Just checked on the wheels after sitting over night. The tires are glued solid they just took a tad longer to dry. It seems like the hybrids will be killer at the j concepts race this weekend.
