For those of you running F1's on carpet, do you prefer the rubber or foam tires?

'some advice needed please

I just tried to apply CA cement to my F60 rubber tyres to glue them to the rims. I made a bit of a mess of it. Basically ran a bead of CA glue around the rim then tried to fit the tyre side wall over the rim (just one side) but the CA glue dries too fast.

How do you guys do it without leaving a messy looking shiney line of glue around outside of the tyre wall?

cheers

You have to mount the tires on the wheels first, then apply CA glue very carefully, as you lift the inner bead of the rubber. Make sure that the tire & wheel are glued evenly, to prevent any wobble. I usually start on the inner side of the wheel, then the outer side. Then apply glue around the rim, to prevent the tires from lifting during runs. To make it easier, you can get a tire mounting tool/helper, that's used on touring car wheels, but I'm not sure if they can be used on F1 wheels. Practice makes perfect!

Thanks for the advice - it seems to be a bit of an art form getting it right

I'll try that now and see how I go!

Just found a handy resource that covers elec and nitro with some good hints that may be helpful.

Default Bobby K "tribute" body

Hi,

This is my first attempt at trying to create something looks like an actual F1. I know it's not a super-accurate replica, but I was happy enough with the results to want to share with the class. Maybe someday my man Bobby K can get into a competitive car and appear on the top step of the podium more often.

-Andy











p.s. This is also my first attempt at inserting an image. I think ImageShack is still processing the uploaded pictures, as I haven't been able to view them yet. I assume once they are uploaded, the embedded images will show...
