Hi All, I am new to the forums. But an old fan of Schumacher products.

I will be buying some 30mm foam rears (ATS) for my fusion 21 (from online shop). I have invested in some rear hub carriers (R12) also. I have been looking on the online shop and am interested in the range of foam tyres. What foam tyres would you recommend?? I will be running 26mm on the front. WHAT ON EARTH IS THE Sh?? Sh is mentioned after every tyre specification. Please let me know as I cannot find this anywhere. Thanx.

Sh stands for shore this is the hardness of the tyre, so 30 would be softer than 40. (i think)

I wouldnt waste youir money on 30 shore , unless your drag racing or road racing . 38 , 42 shore should do very well for you as a parking lot cruiser The best Online price I have found for Foam Tires is RC-Mushroom 8.50 /pr for Nitro Shoes http://rc-mushroom.com/index.php?cPath=44_45&sort =1a&page=3
These are the cheapest I have found for decent foams . The Rub is: they are coming from Hong Kong . I ordered a slew of Tires , 20 pr of  Nitro shoes . my total was 173 and like 23 bux to ship . Total price per/pr is like 9.68 or something . My LHS sells them for 22 bux /pr.
I have not recieved them yet , but I am hoping this week
/me keeps fingers crossed

Well it looks like I am going to have to drill out the mounting holes on my motor mounts  so I can  put in a larger diameter screw with close threads because my stock screw keep coming out even with RED loctite!! I stripped a gear yesterday because the engine shifted. I did not have this problem with the thundertiger motor but it is not putting out the horsepower like this one.

Red loctite is suppose to be the strongest you can get.

Loctite are a huge company, making lots of different sticky stuff in many funky colours-i use a fluro-pink as gasket sealant on gearboxes.

Bottom line is,that there are many different applications and you need the right tool for the job.Green stuff is usually bearing retainer,red,is, i think for low level vibration threads,try using the blue stuff -for high level vibration threads.

Of the three types of loctite you listed RED is the strongest.
