Like Jason I also use the warmers, eaven in the heat of FLA. I do regulate them to about 100F You don't want to broil you tires just warm them.

I ordered a set of CS-27 online. This is what I've got. Is there a way to find out if this is a CS-22 or a CS-27? The packaging looks nothing like the original CS I know.

The sidewall of the tire should have either CS27w or CS22w molded into it.

I only check tires at really big race like Nationals and the Reedy Race. At club races I don't bother and in 4 years of running premounts I have only had 2 bad glue jobs.

As to the new rims...there is no diffrnece in the gluing. Over all Take Off does a really good job seeing as an average tire order for Schumacher USA is ~3000 4pks of tires (Thats 12,000 tires or 24,000 applications of glue). Given the numbers of tires coming in (huge) and the frequency of gluing issues (fairly rare) I think thay are doing a great job.

I used to see a lot more blowout when people glued thier own tires.
I bought two sets of premount RP30s and I'm VERY disappointed with the glue job on these tires. There were gaps in the glue job on three of the four tires in both bags. Where they missed with the glue the tire bulged out leaving it out of round and WAY out of balance. Screw RPs !!!

Thats pretty sketchy. We have never imported anything that looked like that.

Interesting how the packaging denotes CS-22 while their price sticker lists CS-27. Sheldon's is my local LHS and they are always the first place I go for parts. I haven't seen those wheels in the store, but then again I always look for the premounts on dish. I'll probably head in there after work tomorrow and see if I can find that wheel/tire set and try to see what tires are mounted on.

We stand by our products. If someone contacted us and let us know this problem we would replace their tires at no charge.

In the future if you have a problem with any product I suggest you contact the only people that can help you...the manufacturer before flaming products on line.

We all read RC Tech and there have been many cases of guys not getting the support they would normally get from manufacturers because they were jerks on line.

Adrian....

My LHS just received an order about 4 weeks ago of RP's and they are all the old style. They crack way to easy. Have you guys finnished flushing out the old ones from your stock yet? I can't find any of the new kind. Do you know of a place I can get them from? Other then Sheldons, that is.

All CS27s and RP30s have been on new rims for at least a month. RP24 and RP36 are still on the older rim for a few more weeks.

Keep in mind that the only guys having problems with RP ABS rims are at track with brutally solid boards. I have run ABS rim RPs for 2 years and I have not broken one yet. Oh...by the way...I have some pretty spectacular crashes so it not like I am not abusing them.

I think it was premount by sheldons or some subcontractor. They had some CHEAP rims on stock and there you go... Who knows what kind of inserts they used
I will send it back to them...

My son and I went thru 16 sets of RP30's at the REEDY RACE, 4 each for practice and 4 each for qual, and mains.

Not 1 tire came unglued or cracked a rim, even with 3 spectacular flights off the widows peak, and those were the old style rims.

Thanks Adrian for supplying a quality product.

Sorry for the flame but after spending $76.32 for two sets of tires and then having to re-glue them leaves me a bit frustrated especially when my 27's are near perfect. Again my apologies.
