Freezer works well. I've kept CA alive for over a year, it just gets sorta thick never freezes solid.

mine always dries up around the tip so nothing can come out. i keep a needle with me so i just poke it down the tube and it comes out just fine.

I've never had C/A harden in the bottle, I have a bottle of Losi Blue that's over a season old and it's still thin. C/A does lose something overtime that's not related to how it flows. If you're gluing up a few + sets of 1/8 or Truggy tires, it's worth it to buy fresh glue regardless. Re-gluing at the track sucks, aks me how I know..

Default re

I like to keep it in my spare tire box with pliers and such with the cpaloose and tipped on its side works wonders glues your tires to your pliers and nothing on your fingers great for traction control

shameless plug AKA glue has a needle built right into the cap, so when you put the cap back on the bottle it plugs the hole and keeps it from drying out.

... Leave it to AKA
