Yes... I've recycled VTA wheels many times. The acetone won't melt the plastic. One item of note - if the wheels are chrome plated, the chrome will flake off as the acetone breaks the bond between the glue, wheel, and tire.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure since my tc rims completely melted (). And at this point I don't really care about the finish, I just need a secure fit.

My B Main, started 11th and finished 4th, was even 3rd for a while but tapped Very happy with my result considering I only ran 2 heats and the only work I had time for on my TC4 was charging and tire sauce ... and I finished in front of Myron LOL

No joke! lol I know how that feels myself, happened at a hurricane race in the b-main. Was running 3rd and got pealed by 4th, ended up 5th for the b-main. Mad a little but it was all hard racing, even kind of my fault.

No doubt for sure! That one tap cost him alot when it allowed 3rd to catch up Bad thing is that the orange car looked faster in the slow areas than the 1st place car and could have pressed the position, but he opted to race clean.

At the 1:19 mark you can see Myron activate the hidden 3rd cell lipo and pull away on the straight doubling the distance between us

He planned his attack very well. He did it in the blind spot of the camera.

Out of all the stuff I have seen Dirla do that one isnt that impressive.

Now the peel on the orange car is still the tops of that race....not a hint of remorse was shown
