I agree AKA makes some great glue. Try the Losi red label though (thin). It works great as well.

I don't see how anyone can make a judgment on what the Viper combo's performance is since they have not been released yet.

I have to say the Losi thin glue is very good , its so thin it wicks down into the bead very nicely and makes it easy to do a good job without excess glue on the bead or runs .

The AKA glue works great as well but its a little thicker and can make it easier to use too much and cause runs and excessive glue on the outside of the tire.

How quickly does it set? I currently use lrp thin glue, but it bonds instantaneously, and I want something that allows me a few seconds to seat the beads properly.

I have been running the DE wheels since I got the truck and no cracked wheel yet, but, I have replaced a few of them because they were very bend and had a really bad wobble.

The Thin will set pretty darn quick. Maybe have a couple seconds. If you want a little more time to adjust your bead then look into the blue lable std glue.

What are you guys using to balance your wheels btw? I know there are a few different things people use.

I got used to working with thin when I was running 8th scale. The thin wicks so much better for 8th scale tires I really liked how it worked with that. I got used to it for gluing my 10th tires. I like how it sets up faster. Blue is good as you learn to glue or have more time to let it setup but I don't seem to have the patience anymore and use thin. Both losi glues work AWESOME.

I've been using Proline Medium Glue with no issues at all. I've also gone through a bottle of Losi Medium glue with the same results. I prefer the Pro Line bottle because it has a metal pin on the cap to prevent the glue from clogging the nozzle. Unless the pin fell out of the Losi cap, because a buddy just showed me his Losi glue and it had it on there as well...

Edit: Come to think of it, I let someone borrow my Losi glue one time, maybe they pulled a fast one on me.. LOL
