Best glue I've used is regular old Cheap A$$ Hobbytown Thin glue. It's thin enough to dry rapidly, but thick enough so that you cal pull your finger off if something happens.

Also, after you glue the tire, heat it up and then run some rubberized CA along the bead. This keeps the tire from pulling away from the rim, even at high RPMs.

I use the "Hot Stuff" CA glue. It works really good.

I used "ZAP" forever...but found that the LOSI stuff is really good. One guy at my track mixes the "thick" and "thin" LOSI glues together and it works awesome for him!

I would have to agree with the Losi thick..I do keep a bottle of Losi thin if it 's too cold out for the thick.
