But CA is very fast to glue them how can u mount 2 parts so fast before it glue? I somewhere found that they are using gel contact glue or something but not sure.

When i glued tires in the past on my 1:8 car i used a glue called Bison tix.
Put it on tires and rim, let is sit for 20 minutes and then put some thinner on the glue of the tires and quickly put the tire on the rim.
It will cure fast and tire is secure.
True them down to what you like and voila.

regards roy

Follow this link, there's a step-by-step procedure on how to glue foam onto rims. It's pretty easy. I use CA glue and it work out perfectly.

Important points to remember before you start. Always clean the tip of the CA applicator when your about to wedge it in between the wheel and foam. You don't want the CA nozzle sticking to the foam.

When the CA nozzle is wedged in between the foam and wheel, you can then now squeeze a BIG blob of CA. You'll quickly want to move the nozzle in a circular motion around the wheel to spread the blob of CA around the rest of the wheel and tire. If you think there is not enough CA, then quickly squeeze another blob and you should be done the one side. You'll do this for both sides. It would make life easier if you buy some elastics to to hold the one side of the tire while you're gluing the other. You don't want to have the foam slip slightly off the wheel. That would suck.

And remember, practice makes perfect.

It all depends on the grip levels and sauce used as well as whether you want to be able to remove the foam when you're done with acetone. The main idea is you don't want your sauce to be a solvent for your glue. Paragon ground effects is based on lacquer thinner which will soften/dissolve rubber cement type glues. If your wheels will stand up to acetone, then use CA. Then you can race with Paragon or Jack and still remove the wheels with Acetone. It also depends some on the foam thickness you use. Carpet tires on a 12th are paper thin and the sauce will definitely hit the glue wet when applied, where as a typically larger asphalt 12th or 10th, or 8th scale tire has more foam for the sauce to penetrate so it will likely sit on the glue under the foam a shorter time and not dissolve the glue, even if your sauce is a solvent for your glue. If you didn't care about saving wheels you could use shoe goo I suppose or some of the expensive and super strong silicone Japanese glues like XG.

Ulti, Team Bomber, Yokomo, Kawada, Corally, Jaco, Xenon, Zac Project, Eagle Racing (Integy), Square Racing, just to name a few...


I would highly suggest pre-mounted tires. I've messed around with gluing my own tires and caused my car to run inconsistent. Ever since I purchased Gravity RC tires, it's eliminated this problem and now I can focus on chassis setup rather than tire prep and all that BS.

Do CRC tires/wheels fit the new R12C3? Or do I need to convert the rear?

You will need to replace the axle and hubs to run CRC. If you still want to run offset wheels try these http://www.facebook.com/proonerc

You will still need a different axle and hubs but you would still have an offset wheel like the car was designed for.

What is wrong with the stock hubs and axle the R12C3 comes with? Are you guys finding the tire compounds Yokomo has not good?
