Rims

Due to the extreme loads during driving, cornering and high jumps, the design of the rim and the materials used are extremely important. The proper flexibility and strength allow the Louise RC rims to withstand these heavy forces.
The rims are made of a mixture of high quality nylon granulates, charged with fiber or without. These composites have been specially developed by Dupont® for Louise RC.
 
Bead-Lock rims
For some time now, the popularity of Bead-Lock rims has been growing, in particular due to their scale-looks of the fixing screws in the outer rings of the rim.

The other big difference between Bead-Lock and regular rims. With Bead-Lock rims, the tyres are not glued but clamped and screwed onto the rim. The special way of clamping and the strong fastening of the screws ensures that the tire stays firmly on the rim.

SPORT Compound
Louise RC has years of experience in producing high performance tires for RC cars. We have learned that the RC hobby driver and the RC basher have totally different requirements for the tires for their RC cars than for example the RC competition car driver.
From this experience the special sports rubber compound has been developed. The sport rubber compound comes in 2 hardnesses, soft or medium. For the lighter 1/10 cars the soft compound is mainly used and for the more powerful and usually heavier 1/8 models the medium compound is applied.
 
The SPORT rubber compound guarantees a tire that;

  • is particularly wear-resistant
  • provides an outstanding road-handling and steering precision
  • provides an excellent grip on the different types of surfaces
  • is compatible with the high power ratings of today's RC cars

Tire inserts
The tires are mounted either with special preformed foam inserts or with cut-to-size foam inserts. The inserts are selected in a specific density and size in order to guarantee perfect dampening and form stability of the tire.
 
Mounted - Glued
Due to the extreme forces the tires must be well bonded to the rims. Louise RC takes the highest care in bonding the tires properly.  For years they have been searching to find a good way to glue the tires in a good but also clean way. Today Louise RC is one of the best in the RC industry.
The tires are glued with a special rubber cyanoacrylate glue. This glue has been specially developed for Louise RC to guarantee a perfect and firm bond. 
 
The following steps are performed in production at Louise RC in order to obtain a perfect bond;

  • The rings of the rubber tire to be glued are slightly grinded and degreased.
  • The surface of the rim where the tire will be glued is grinded up and degreased.
  • The tyre is bonded to the rim with cyanoacrylate adhesive using a special dosing machine. 

As a result, the equal amount of glue is always applied.

  • The bonded tire is pressed for a specific time in order to ensure perfect bonding and curing.
  • Each tire passes a spinning and pulling test to ensure perfect bonding.  

MFT Technology
MFT stands for Micro Fiber Technology. This technology indicates the presence of a textile belt in the rubber tread of the tire to prevent the tire from ballooning during high speed operations.

The MFT technology keeps the tire in shape, even during heavy accelerations and high-speed runs. 
The well-known ballooning of a normal tyre without MFT technology that disturbs the entire shape and where the diameter of the tyre changes under these extreme conditions, is now part of the past.
 
Important:
The tire with MFT technology is usually a bit heavier then normal tires without MFT technology. We recommend to check your gear ratio and adjust if needed.
