Pro-Line Tire Glue—#PRO603100
It does not take long for someone who is just starting out in RC to realize that having the right tire glue is crucial to achieving a secure bond between tires and wheels. Pro-Line set out to not only develop a tire glue that would be as strong as possible, but it also needed to have the correct flow characteristics and drying time that bashers and racers are looking for. Pro-Line states on their website that this tire glue has a “hold strength of 3,200 PSI (Test method: steel on steel in tensile shear) and that is the highest strength tire glue available.” Additionally, this glue dries crystal clear without whitening or yellowing which happens when using other brands of tire glue.
The chemical makeup of the glue is just part of the story here. Pro-Line then considered the container and application method. This led to sourcing a super soft and squeezable round bottle that gives you an improved feel when gluing tires and its shape proves to be more stable when resting on a bench compared to elliptical shaped glue bottles. Complementing the bottle is the translucent yellow Pro-Line applicator tips. They are specifically designed to snap onto the bottle for a secure fit, are reusable and have just the right size opening for gluing tires. Each bottle of Pro-Line tire glue includes two of these applicator tips. If you want to have extra on hand, they are available for purchase separately from Pro-Line (Glue Tips #PRO603101).
Pro-Line Roll-Up Pit Mat—#PRO990801

The Mat measures 2×3-feet to give you plenty of space to setup all the gear you need for a day of racing or bashing. The material is light-weight, durable, extra-thick, non-slip and can resist most of the chemicals normally used in RC. It is brilliantly colored in Pro-Line blue and has sweet multi-colored Pro-Line logos. When the day is done, just simply roll it up and you are off.
