There is a product called Flash Black. I don't know who makes it. But it's a rubberized CA glue that works pretty good on foams. I use it when I get a flap of foam loose.

contact cement would be an option. with contact cement, you dont have to worry about having hard spots in you foam tire. just let the adhesive dry a little (it gets much stickier that way) and put the tires on the wheels.. just my suggestion

Well In mod i pitch the car when the track is tight because with today's crazy HP you almost have to. But in stock pitching scrubs too much corner speed. Boomer, You are probably slower when driving smooth because you've set your car up to pitch it in the corners. I guess it's personal preferance, but watch Paul Lemiuex or Josh Cryul drive their TC's...smooooootthh.

Very likely I have. I KNOW I've seen Tosselini and Barry run their nitros (GT-4 and NTC-3 respectively) and they pitch theirs quite a bit.

I'm actually running a similar (slightly less aggressive) setup to Barry's (or the last setup I saw him running). I'm speaking about pitching my car when running nitro, sorry. I should have specified that.

With my Pro10 I don't pitch it, I drive throughout. You're spot on there.

There is a distinct difference between driving styles in Nitro and Electric. Sorry, my bad. I should have paid more attention to which forum I was on! oops!.

Ohhhhh lol. Sorry if i gave you a hard time then, i thought you were talking about electric TC. Yea I agree with you in nitro though, probably the fast way around the track.

somehow I bet it's a rubber cement/contact cement. . .

I've found the stuff that I like the best is actually made by Loctite - just their normal contact cement. I get it at Pep Boys. It holds up well, is cheap and is just plain old good stuff. I keep a tube of it in my box since the real soft tires we use for Pro10 (25 shore) tend to chunk or peel fairly often. They're just so soft.

Axiom - it's my own fault for running my mouth off without checking!
