Thanks for the info Butter. Thanks PW.

I am looking forward to trying these at the Nor Cal track. How about it Mr. Rimer? Do you have any tires out here in California for testing?

As I said, I will have very good supply in about 2 weeks. I just need to find out if we will be mounting them or if we will have them mounted for us. Worst case, we can ship a few out and let the racers mount them like we did at the Florida State race. Just be careful with the CA!

I think you should have Butter write a glueing tutorial, and slip it in with the unglued packages you send out. I would fall firmly into the "spoiled" category, and would have probably glued the insert to the wheel up-side-down, and the tire inside out.

If you have to glue tires, I tried the Take Off "Blue" tire glue... It is the best stuff I have used for touring tires...

For guys that have to mount tires go to a drug store and buy some needles for shots/injections (larger needles). Cut the tip off of them so you dont jab your self and use those on the end of the glue bottle. The ones I used this weekend fit on the losi bottles perfect and they dont bend when gluing. I just put the tip in the bead and run it around the wheel and it was done perfect. If the glue dries simply heat it up with a lighter and the glue will disolve and flow again.

Best method I have ever used besides pre-mounts!
