Default Tire Rip

My proline dirt works ripped apart today. I had only ran them maybe 5 tanks. Do you think tower or proline would replace the one that ripped?

I doubt Tower would replace, however, you could still try going through Pro-line. In the meantime, if there is no LHS nearby, you could just glue the tire back together with the same glue you use to glue the tire bead to the rim.

The glue wouldn't hold on stress like that, ecspecially on the treads....

Glue will hold. There was an article in a rc magazine(rc driver or rc car action. cant remember) about how to make low profile tires and they cut the tire all the way across then cut out a section and glued them back together. And it held fine.

CA will fix that perfectly. The guys at the track I used to race at made front buggy tires from cutting sections out of rear tires and gluing them back together. To test it, one guy pulled at the seam hard enough that it tore the tire... in a different spot!

I watched The Drake replace a set of foams on a 1/10 tire by cutting the tire right down the center, rather than removing the tire from the wheel. After he glued them, you could not even tell they were cut. Yes, glue will work perfectly.
