    Taping tires..

    I didn't know about taping tires until a lil while ago.. Is it worth it? And if it is how do I get the tires off the rims that are already glued together..

    You boil the tires to separate them from the rim.

    Taping absolutely works...I'm not blowing out my tires any more.

    I think it depends on how much wheel-spin you're getting. More wheel-spin = more ballooning. More ballooning = less tire on the track.

    You may be okay running just 2S...

    What exactly is taping tires? Can someone explain this and/or show a couple pictures? I've not heard of this before.

    Is when you turn your tire inside out beforeglueing you take either duck tape or girilla tape and line the tire opposite of tread

    I use Gorilla tape...it's super sticky and stronger than regular duct tape.
