Yes melias, use the appropriate Tamiya rims with the appropriate tires. The F103 and F104 have different sized tires (F103 smaller diameter and slightly wider than the F104 which are taller diameter and slightly narrower). Also, try this when you are gluing the tires to the rims: use the black tire glue. This gives you a few more seconds to line the edge of the tire to the edge of the rim before the glue sets. Let the tires sit for 24hrs, then run a bead of instant CA to the tire/rim seam. You should not have any issues with the tire separating from the rim down the road.

yeah he is right. i forgot to mention that you want to use the f104 rims with the pit tires designated for 104. you cant install 104 tires on 103 rims. and vice versa.

I haven't noticed F103 and F104 were different before finding them listed in TQ

In fact, I've got confused about all the combinations of compounds, brands for tires and rims and those that could be used by F113 with small modifications.

Here are the rims/tires that I've selected:

Tamiya F104 rims for foam:

Shimizu R1-hard for F103:
http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=1987

Shimizu F1-Medium for F103:
http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=1652

I live in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and here is hot like a hell (20 Celsius in the Winter and up to 50 in the summer). Moreover, our track is abrasive asphalt.

Thanks Ph3nyx. I've changed the wheels for the correct ones.

I haven't found the black tire glue JLock mentioned

Is it CA?

My LHS carries the black tire glue. It is more flexible than regular CA, sort of like a rubberized CA. Since going with this type of glue, my tires stayed glued to the rims longer and I don't have to use an accelerator. I get my best results when I let it cure for 24 hours before using the tire. Below are a couple of links to the type of glue I am referring.

http://www.siriusrocketry.biz/ishop/...FcURMwodMkUA_g

Both are pretty much the same but are labeled slightly different. But, this is some of the best glue to use on rubber tires to plastic/nylon rims.

I wonder how they would perform against the Ride R1 tires on a hot day?

Something that I will need to check out. Living in Texas, it gets really hot most summers (avg been around 100F degrees last couple of years) with the asphalt reaching temps of 140F degrees plus easily.

Hi.
What tire insert is in the package? Also, are they harder than R3, which are good for hot summer days?
