I think your glue is no good... or there might be some release oils in the parts: motor cleaner & towel time

It is always a good idea to clean plastic parts before you try to glue them. Also, wash your hands before you clean the parts to keep you skin oils off of the plastic. This is true for painting bodies, gluing tires, getting double sided tape to stick, velcro, and most anything else with self adhesive tape on it. Plastics right out of the bag will have this problem since the manufacturer has to use some kind of mold release lubricant to get the parts out of the molds when they are made. Kind of like using cooking spray when you bake something in the oven. This mold release substance doesn't usually get cleaned off until you do it. I prefer to use rubbing alcohol since it will dry fast. I wouldn't recommend using it on clear plastics like bodies. For bodies, use warm water and plain soap. Does anyone else do this??

If it doesn't stick in the next 30 minutes I'll try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol. Thanks for the heads up!

I recommend the new Factory Team Glue (#1597). I used it on all my pullies and have had no problems.

I recommend fully bottoming out the spring and then backing the screw out 1/4 of a turn. Be sure to check the setting after every few packs until it takes a full set.

why at shizouka hobby show are exposed with a yokomo CGM drift car on side?
Yokomo is the importer of Associated in Japan, thus they had the car on display at the hobby show.

Hey Brent have you guys thought about aluminum steering knuckles and aluminum rear hubs for the indoor season.

They seem to be a very very popular items that the other big tc companies are selling.

And the rear hubs would be great to help free up the rear end in higher traction carpet foam tire racing
