I like the Fusion. Its definitely more fluid then the losi, so you have to go a little slow not to make a mess, but seems to hold better then the Losi. Make sure you clean the wheels and tires well before you glue them.

1st choice = Fusion
2nd choice = Losi

Loctite 406, designed for bonding rubber to plastic.

Scuff the wheels and the rubber where you are going to glue, and clean with alcohol. The glue will bond better. I like the Losi glue or zap thin.

I like ZAP as well. I am trying this new stuff called Performance something, comes in a red bottle (big) with checkered flags on the front. Was cheaper than losi and proline and you got a pretty big bottle. Running it with 5700 mamba power really spinning those wheels it is holding very nicely. I will definitely keep using this stuff.

As was mentioned above, make sure to clean both the tire bead AND the bead channel on the wheel with alcohol. I use denatured alcohol.

The best gule I have used is Pro-Line. It is a little pricey. But its worth it.
