I just recently purchased the JConcepts New Medium Hauler (SCT Size) and it has been awesome! Just what I needed. Thanks for great product with a reasonable price.

I apologize if this has been asked, but what foams are used in the stadium truck premounts? They feel pretty nice, whatever they are.

i got a set of rulux 1/10 yellow wheels and some green bar codes front. tried gluing them the first time and they never bonded. after twenty minutes i could peel them off the rims. i figured my glue was no good (about three weeks old) so i threw it away. sanded down the tires and scuffed the wheels. bought brand new glue and cleaned every thing with brake cleaner and reglued them. after 20 mins they were a little better, but this is thin ca proline tire glue (sets in 10 secs) and they still feel weak at the edges. let them sit for about 10 mins and they are glued but crunchy when you pull on the side wall.
just wondering if any one ha seen this? i have glued alot of wheels, six sets two weeks ago, and have never seen this. ambient temp was about 75* and low humidity. cleaned the wheels and the tires and dried for about 30 min before gluing. just never seen this and makes me worry if they are gonna hold up.

Did you try cleaning the rims and tire beads with motor spray to clean away the release agent?

yes, cleaned with motor spray like jobby taught me when gluing tires. same method as all ways. since this post i have read through some of the others and found a few other people had this concern. i read the pw guy uses med ca glue. all ways used thin but may go to the med style.

Just purchased the new Hybride tire for 1/10 scale and noticed its a really tall tire, Any suggestion on what foam to run and why is it so tall?

You're not alone. Most everyone I know has been having issues gluing Greens and Blues recently. Lately both have come with a shiny residue from what I assume is the mold release. We've found AKA and JC glue to work the best, but they definitely have issues taking glue compared to any other tire. Heck, my last set of Greens was completely covered with the stuff, half the tire was shiny and the rest with a dull finish. They didn't work too well...

I've gotten good results cleaning the tires with alcohol. Get a rag damp and wipe the entire bead and sidewall. I let the tire air dry while I wipe the other 3, they get to dry while I reinstall the inserts. Same for the wheels, I use a rag damp with alcohol, I usually do that before working the tires.

I test fit the tires, making sure everything seats well. When gluing, I use tire bands (sorry, not JC ones, Panther ones) and let each side dry for 1/2 hour before moving to the next side.

I use a LHS brand of thin glue, haven't had any issues with JC green & gold, Proline M3 & M4 & MC, Losi pink & red and Panther Soft.

I'm new to the Stadium Truck class and see that there are no hex wheels for the T4.1. Are there any plans for our friends at JConcepts to come out with some?
