Default DIRT RC Tire Gluer - Opinions?

Can anyone share their thoughts on the Dirt RC Tire Gluer. Does it work well? Is it durable? Is is worth the investment if you are donna glue up a lot of truggy tires?

Thanks

Well, if you're gonna do Truggy tires, it's not a good investment at all....it only works on 1/8th buggy tires. See below for the description from the DIRT RC website (I highlighted the text in red).


Ultimate Tire Gluer

This is The Ultimate Tire Gluer from D.I.R.T R/C Products. Make gluing tires incorrectly a thing of the past. With this unique tool you can gently pull the bead back and glue the bead then release the tool and get a perfect bead every time. It is for 1/8 Off Road Buggy Tires only.

Dunno about that one but I wish I had GRP's old tire gluing machine lol. Those were the only pre-mounts I ever trusted.

I swear the glue job on them couldn't be any better. I used to run the heck out of them and never had one even hint at letting go.
