Practicing tire glueing

Post by laneboysrc on Fri 19 Apr 2013 - 22:08

Dear fellow SG Crawlers,

one thing that I miss from our activities is the artistic side. Sure, we have tons of fantastic, Hollywood-quality movies, and many of us make photos that make Adam Ansel look amateurish. pirat But there must be more that can be done with RC.

So Patrick and I set out to create this "installation":
We haven't given it a name yet, please feel free to suggest Smile


























Ok, seriously now Very Happy

My arms hurt, my fingers are full of CA, but I have them all glued up:


9 sets of tires for our fleet. From left to right:
  • Sweep 25 deg slicks for Mini rear
  • Sweep 33 slicks deg for Mini front
  • Tamiya Super slicks on cheap Yeah Racing rims for Mini
  • Tamiya Radial Medium and S-Grip on the Alfa rims for the M-06
  • HPI Cup Racer slicks and rims (notice that they are slightly larger than the Tamiya mini!)
  • M-1025 Hummer tires
  • Taimya Rally Block on original old Lancia Delta Integrale rims for my DF03Ra
  • Speed Mind R28 Rally Block on Lancia Delta Integrale rims that came with the DF03Ra kit
  • Some 12 year old Touring car rims and tires cyclops

That's enough tire gluing for now... drunken

Actually this is the best I've ever managed to achieve. A few mistakes here and there, but in general most turned out really nice. This time I used the ultra thin glueing nozzles for the CA glue bottle. This makes a hole lot of difference where you get the glue, and how much you apply.
Interestingly every tire needed a different strategy to pull back to apply the glue. The soft mini slicks were the easiest to do as they bend easily. The Rally Block tires where quite painful, and the low profile touring tires were the most difficult to push away.

Excuse me now while I go down to the park and test out the new M-05 tires jocolor

X2!!! My Ken Block tyres need replacing. Wonder what method you would use to remove worn rubbers from the wheels? Boiling in hot water??
