Default Gluing foam tire side walls

What are peoples views on gluing the side walls of foam tires once they been trued?

Does this help with chunking during traction roll?

I find that it helps as long as I stay off the curbs.

You might also want to try and add a bit more negative camber to see if that helps also.

I use to glue the edges on my front tires to help with traction rolling at my old track.

Everyone had different ways to take care of traction rolling Some would put grooves in thier front tires or file down 2-3 mill of the inside of the tires.

I guess all the radius we put on both the edges of what ever tires we use, we'll still get traction rolling chunks huh boyz...

At the Castle Hobbies track (r.i.p.) the traction was so high that you did whatever you could to prevent traction rolling! aside from the hardest spring and hardest tire, we would glue the sidewalls. This help stiffen the side wall and help prevent rollovers.
I also did it when i raced sedan at vegas once. There was one corner that almost every car traction rolled , so you had to take it easy. Instead of changing my whole setup, cause the car was good everywhere else, i just glued the outside tire and it totally improved my laps times!
