  • Tire God



    Hearing that my RAA LMP car was a little loose I thought a prayer to the pagan god of tires was in order.

    Let us pray.

    Oh tire God, which you truly are a fair, and just God please let my tires be..........



    I hope everyone takes this in the spirit in which it is intended, and does not offend anyone.

      You got it right. Glue, wheels, and tires from Slot Car Corner are on top. I think the tire god will treat you kindly and grant any wish that you want.

      If it doesn't work, stick everything in the microwave on high for 5 minutes.

        That's weird - I keep my IC-2000 in the fridge, along with my nail polish ...

          Going to assume CLEAR nail polish (as an alternative adhesive)

            Thats funny Geno!
            Its amazing how important tire prep is to toy car racing on wood.
            When i test cars on carrera plastic track, the difference between trued and glued tires and slip ons is only a tenth or so.
            The same comparison on wood tracks nets 4-5 tenths as well as improvements in handling consistancy.
            Proxy races are predominantly a tire war

              My IC-2000 is also kept in the fridge, and only remove it to glue tires to wheels , or build shrines.

                I can only hope and pray my LMP preforms better. It ran great as a SW, but not so good as an inline I'm afraid.
                It may be a long season for me in the RAA.

                  I pray you are right Smokeio, but me thinks I should not anger the gods by nuking the shrine.

                  Good luck to all in the RAA, lets race and have some fun!!!

                    You should be praying to the tire goddess... Yep, the holy one that watches over our traction is female. How do I know? I was working on my hudy once and dropped a set screw. As I bent over to look for it, I hit my forehead on the edge of the workbench. As I laid there, knocked out cold, I saw a great black pile of rubber dust. And out from that dust rose a beautiful goddess in a white gown. She whispered to me "you should have used C1's on your shootout car," and then I woke to find the set screw in the palm of my hand, along with a missing headlight cover, 7 rearview mirrors, three spoilers and niki lauda's head from a fly classic chevron. To this day, I am still baffled at how she managed to keep the rubber dust from soiling her gown.

                          'One of these days' I'm going to get a can of gloss white spray paint and cover the linoleum and concrete floor under my workbench (I'm always promising myself) so that I'll actually be able to find those numerous items that get dropped. I'm always promising myself ...

                              WCR,

                              If I may butt in. Do as jewelry repairers and fabricators do. A large (as big as you can find, or will fit under the work surface of your bench) cookie tray (like a lasagna pan but shallow). Build a small stand, or attach rails...adapt your bench as necessary to hold the tray below your work area.

                              All the jewelers did this. With stuff as valuable as gold, especially lately, you don't want any of it making it to the floor; nor precious stones.

                              FWIW.

                              Mc
