This tool is a must for every serious Rc racer. I can't stress how much easier it is to get tires glued. I can glue 4 sets of tires up in the time it used to take to do one set.

can someone give me the steps so that i wont have my tire getting unglued..

btw are these two systems available in europe? or can they get shipped in to europe?

help will be appreciated.

Thanks!!
Use some denatured alcohol on a rag and clean the tire bonding area really good, and the rim, this will make sure no mold release agent is still on there.

Then trim any flashing from the tire bead, and mount the tires on the rims, and go around the tire and make sure the bead is all the way in the groove and the foam is centered....

Then let em set for a while.....Wrap a bit rubber band around the tire really close to the edge. Gently pull open the tire and put one big drop in the rim. Let go, and go around the whole tire at 1/2 to 1 inches apart doing the same thing. and then whipe the xcess glue off and leave it alone.

set it down and quit picking at it....Let it dry and do the other tires the same way, then do the other sides after all is dry......

OOps didn't see your post Johnny....Great advice.....let dry overnight, and skuffing is not necessary...

While I was gluing up 5 sets of tires tonight, I kept thinking, someone has to have a better way of doing this - gluing tires up is tied with painting bodies for the least fun thing to do in rc racing for me! Thank god I found this thread, one of these will be in my pit box immediately. Awesome device, nice work!

No, thank you for bringing something like this to market!

Please tell me you have something in the works for SC tires too, I'm thinking just an additional top plate? And is there anywhere closer to CA I can order this from besides NJ?

Mounted up about 5 pairs of tires yesterday. Was thankful for my Dirt R/C tire glue rack. Worked great thanks for a good product.

That explains my issues then
