Default Phin Design 1/8 buggy tire gluing jig

Hey guys, I am really excited to tell you all about the launch of Phin Design R/C and the release of my first product; the Phin Design R/C 1/8 buggy tire gluing jig. Originally, I designed this for myself to take the hassle out of gluing tires. I wanted something that was simple, efficient, consistent, and fast...really fast, and that's what I made. It was not my original intention to put it on the market, but people kept buying mine off me at the track when they saw how well it worked. Honestly, nothing gives me more satisfaction than to aid someone else in their success, and that desire to see others struggle less, win more, and experience more joy is why I made the decision to bring this to you all. So, from one racer to all of you, thanks for being the band of brothers that you are, and I hope this helps. ~Joey

Hey...I recognize that screen name! How are you? I haven't seen you in so long. I hope all is well. You're still racing, so it can't be too bad. Yeah, I haven't forgotten about my truggy siblings! You can expect many good things to come from Phin Design R/C. It's good to hear from you. Say hello to the rest of my r/c family down there for me, and thanks for the compliment!

Looks cool. Have been using the dirt rc plastic one for a while but always wished it was easier to center up the tire in the jig.

Joey great video very well spoken being its from a true racer its even better. I just finished gluing 16 buggy and truggy tires last nightstarted at 5 finished at 845 that's waiting for the glue to dry it was a PAIN my glued hands don't appreciate this task. I HATE gluing tires with a passion. I'm hoping you get a truggy version out ASAP that would be a first for the industry.
