There are plenty of good videos that show and threads on rctech that describe how to glue the OUTSIDE sidewall and/or treads of rubber tires to help prevent traction rolling. I would advise to search for that information.

However in answer to your question for a TT-01, I like to apply the "super glue" to the tip of a "q-tip". I then use the q-tip to apply the glue directly where I need on the tire. I always approach gluing the outside of a tire with the mindset that less is more. Just add enough until you reach the amount of traction you are aiming for. If you add too much, I would keep some super glue debonder/remover handy.

As far as where to apply the glue, make sure you check the local class rules first. Some classes/tracks do no allow you to apply glue to the actual tread of the tire. If that is not a rule, I usually just apply a thin bead of glue where the sidewall meets the tread of the tire. Sometime I might even put glue on the entire outside tread of treaded tires. Some people like to glue the entire side wall of tires as well. It really depends on the tires being used.

Another tuning option is to upgrade the TT-01 kit to adjust upper links on the front and rear. Those parts came on the TT-01e type R kits.
I'm currently racing VTA. Check here for rules/info: http://www.usvintagetransam.com/
