MIP has been a leading accessory manufacturer for over 35 years, and they've really turned it on lately with race-winning hop-ups and upgrades for everything from stock 1/10-scale racing to Dirt Nitro Challenge champion 1/5-scale parts. When team manager and tech support specialist Matt Olson arrived on Wednesday, he began passing out promo packs of the new Stickeez to drivers in the pit area - another "duh, why didn't I think of that?" idea that could radically affect the performance of your car or truck.
The Stickees are preforated one-inch strips measuring in at 12 inches long. Once for sale, the Stickees will come in sets of eight strips, so they'll stick two sets of foams and wheels, but the special Cactus Classic promo packs only include four. By sticking the foam to the wheel, you can now balance your tires without worry of the foam shifting and making the problem worse.
The pack includes step-by-step instructions for applying the strips quickly and easily, making for perfect adhesion every time.
Upon arriving, Matt immediately began gluing up a set of JConcepts Smoothies for his MIP Pro-4 truck using the Stickees strips.
