NOW you tell me. Thanks. I'll remember that next time. It's actually pretty upsetting because the tires were working great, but the rims weren't going to last much longer. (I hit too much stuff last weekend, or too much stuff hit me).

That CA debonder is actually made by bob smith industries. A lot of hobby shops actually order from them, so you don't have to order from hobby king. A lot of shops will have that, but with their own name on the top label .

Just use a little bit. let it work in for a short time and your glue will let go.
I don't now what it does to the rubber. Each rubber reacts a bit different but I use it to get glue of my tires as I spill some on it.

Hebiki, yes that is it.

Like every hobby shop here in the Seattle area stocks that stuff!!! You should be able to find it in a hobby town or something since it's more of an airplane thing.

Bob Smith Industries Website

Some of the best glues made, all hand batched. Look around the website, im sure the next time you go to one of your local hobby shops you will see BSI stuff with your hobby shops logo on it.

Default ROAR Region 12

For the second year in a row, Solaris tires will be the tire of choice at ROAR Region 12 race. Last year it was at Ripon Raceway (Northern California), this year the race will be held at the Roadrunners RC Club in Southern California (April 24th-25th). They will be using the Solaris "H" compound. If you are in the area, try and make this race!

EJ why are the rims not normal dish rims?
Is there a reason for, for the separate dis that you can mount on?
Is it for the eye or has it a reason?

ROAR Region 12, 1/10th Electric On Road Championships
As EJ stated, the ROAR Region 12 On Road Champs will be held at Freedom Park, Camarillo CA on April 24 and 25th.

At our last club race on 3/14/10 we started using Solaris tires on our track in preparation for the Regionalís. I am pleased to say the Solaris tires worked very well on our track surface. In my option, the tires seemed to work the best after 2 runs. We race a spec 13.5 class with racers using just Solaris tires and a normal 13.5 class. Solaris work so well for me, I ran the same set of Solaris tires in both classes all day and I will probably use the same set next week.

In any big event, sponsors play a large part in the success of the event. I want to thank all of our sponsors and especially EJ and Solaris tires for their support and dedication to the racer.

-Steve
