Re: 2021 LEGEND SERIES RULES
So just like Ken indicated, I'm using a black weatherstrip adhesive I get from an auto parts store.

I coat the entire outer diameter of the wheel with it and then slip the tire on. You want to make sure you get glue on the outer radius of the wheel so the tire does not try to peel off during cornering. After you mount the tire, some glue squeeze out will happen and you must wipe the excess off so there is no external visible trace of any glue. I have the wheel locked on to an axle when i do this. Then I clamp the axle in a vise and spin the tire on the wheel to evenly spread out the glue between the tire and the wheel. After the glue is dried, I true the tire.

I have found, on the rare occasion, when I remove a glued tire from a wheel, I can remove the remaining glue from the wheel with a round wire brush chucked up in my Dremel. But usually, when I glue a tire to a wheel, it is there for life.

Thanks Ken, I didn't know that about urethane tires.

"Slot It. Ford GT40 Mk 1 and Mk 2 , and the Policar 330 P3/P4 amended 9/21(Policar is owned by Slot It. )"

Shouldn't that read 330 P4 and 412P? Those would be the appropriate models for sale by Policar anyway.

Re: 2021 LEGEND SERIES RULES
Virtually every series we have ever run has had a spec tire, this one is no different. The person who is kind enough to run the series picks a tire and we use it. We have had many Super Tire series, a couple Quick Slick series, at least one stock rubber tire series, this time it's Paul Gage tires. I know it isn't what we're used to, but it keeps the racing close. At least if you already bought other tires you can use them on something else of change them after the series, I ran out and bought tiger milk and NSR tire oil cause I thought we were going to run stock rubber, now I have like $15 worth of tire treatment that I will probably never use, but I'm not complaining.

As far a gluing is concerned, I use Permatex Flowable Silicone, also known as Windshield and Glass sealant. It's is a nice thin silicone, so you don't get globs of silicone that don't let the tire seat nicely, and when you want to take them off, it isn't a big deal and clean up is generally pretty easy. Put a thin bead in the groove in the tire, slide it on the wheel carefully so you don't apply too much pressure in any one spot, then I roll the car back and forth on a flat surface for a bit to make sure the extra silicone works it's way out. Let it dry overnight and trim off any excess. Urethane tires used to tend to stretch (I don't know if that is the case with Paul's tires), take them off a couple times and they don't want to stay on.

Re: 2021 LEGEND SERIES RULES
What is the best glue or material to use for gluing in your opinion Denny.?

Disco Denny 09/17/2020, 1 month ago Responded in 2021 LEGEND SERIES RULES
Re: 2021 LEGEND SERIES RULES
First, always glue your tires, no matter how tight they fit. When cornering, they WILL try to peel off, resulting in chattering when cornering.

Just a thought, but is there any particular reason we cannot not have an open tire rule? or indicate Silicone only? or Urethane only?

Thanks to The Finger we realized that we posted the wrong spur gear for the cars. They came with 32Z gears, not 31Z. The rules have been corrected.
