    glue tires?

    Do I need to glue tires on my e maxx? Does it depend on the speed I run? Mine is an older e maxx and I run mostly in the grass. I will probably use 2s or 3s lipos. Thanks, Don

    If your tires are not glued, I would definitely recommend gluing them.

    If you're not into gluing tires maybe check out some beadlocks but yes you should always glue tires. They will just spin off even with lower speeds

    Thanks; I have 4 new tires on order, unglued. Do I use super glue or is there something better? Any videos on how to glue?
    Thanks; Don

    I would use CA glue. Its specifically made for gluing rc tires. Usually less than $5 a bottle. There are quit a few videos on YouTube about how to do it.

    The factory tires on the 3906s would stay on the rims if they weren't glued (I didn't glue mine for years); however, the rims will spin inside of the tires under load. Aftermarket tires will definitely come off, though.

    Super glue (CA glue) will work just fine; I've been using it for years without any issues. There are tire glues specifically designed for R/C use, but I'm not convinced that they work any better.
