Yes 51399 is the "Kit" tire that works

http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ...w.asp?p_id=580

Be careful because 54198 is the "Optional Hard" kit style tire that they made before there was a good rear tire offered.
I have used these in extreme cases with some success when nothing seemed to work.

And stay away from the 54199 "Optional Soft" rear offered by Tamiya back in the day as they are junk but they were trying.

I believe that the CRC F1 tires are very close to the TCS tires. Cheaper, too.

Spur, rear axle bearings, and if you have hard boards, an upper and lower arm. Oh, don't forget various shims and the suspension O rings.

That's because you are always trying to trick us! hehe


574/575 have a MUCH wider range than anyone believes.

Didn't you hear? I am a Magician.

I ran the 574/575 at the clubrace before the CTS Finale. After, I decided to go 71/72 because I didn't want to mount any new tires for outdoors and decided to try the premounts. Well you know how that ended. I used my older carpet 71/72 sets that ran just fine.

Stupid rear premounts I blew out two sets as well

What tape?
tape on tire side?
tape on rim side?

or foam glue?

I used rubber cement from a bicycle tire repair kit and it worked fine.

Jay,
Are you talking about gluing the strip to itself to make it a loop, gluing the loop to the wheel, or gluing the loop to the tire?
I glue the strip together to make a loop using 3M spray adhesive. Spray each end, wait 3-5 minutes, then press together. Scirocco14 shared this with me.

I use Elmer's rubber cement. Apply to both side, let dry to tacky, then press together. No hard seam and the glue stays flexible.

Elmers rubber cement and a strip of clear packing tape on both sides. Never any splits or issues doing it this way for a few years.

yes to make a loop

I have always just used strapping tape on the rim side

I use Magic.

1.5 inches of battery strapping tape on the outside slightly heated to get the tape to be a little more tacky. No failures to date. I would use 3M 77 as mentioned,but I have no other use for a whole can of that stuff to warrant buying it.
