    Hey guys,

    Building a Scout car stock axle slots. Should we put CA on the body where the hub will meet the body and sand it smooth? We can only run graphite. Or should we just burnish like we did last Year? Thanks, Kyle

    Does the brand CA matter? I have generic super glue. Will this work or should I get a different glue?

    Now would you still put the CA on there for the rear wheels if you are canting them and they are not touching the body?

    Would you recommend CA (If only have the gel type) or would epoxy also work? And how to go about making sure no glue gets into the axle hole? Just stick a dummy axle in there?

    No just use your pin vise to open it back up once it dries. CA glue only.
