3. Is it necessary to glue the insert to the insde of the tire?
It's illegal to modify the structure of the tire, which means the insert must be run as intended (ie: not glued or otherwise retained). On a side note, when these non-belted treaded vintage tires break-in, they provide a phenominal amount of grip. They're a bit wishy washy, but the grip is stout.

I agree, but I believe 27T/17.5 have been behind since the very start. Lately though, the KERS equipped ESCs
are just silly. Once the majority of speedos have that feature, this won't be a big deal. Until then, I suggest race directors shorten the straightaways IF this becomes a problem for their group of racers. On the topic of bearings, yes it would extend the life of the 27T motors, but the bigger issue is.....where will 27T racers get NiMH batteries from in the coming months and years? Most of the well known matchers are reducing their processing of them due to lack of sales.
