Tire glues have traditionally been “thin” cyanoacrylates (CAs) that rely on their water-like consistency to wick between tire and rim to provide a tight bond. This also makes them prone to running across tire sidewalls and rims, marring their finish, or worse, gluing your fingers to the tire, the tire to your workbench, or both. ZAP‘s new “rubber toughened” glue is applied from a tube in gel form rather than a thin liquid, and the unique “No-Drip Tip” design even sucks back extra glue flow after each application. It’s literally pretty neat. We’ll try the stuff out when we get some and let you know how it works–with ZAP’s rep in the glue biz (ask any RC plane builder), it should be good stuff.
Here’s the info from ZAP:
• Strong, permanent bond
• Excellent RC tire glue
• Perfect for high-vibration areas
• Works on just about everything
• Clear, thick formula
