We actually use West Sytem 105/205 with a blend of high density and colloidial silica fillers to create a mix with both high compressive and tensile strength. Too little gap and you'll never be able to be sure you got glue in there. Too much and the glue won't really do the job at all. So that mix proved to be the most effective. Variations still exist and I'd suggest simply approaching it again at the known standard is the best course of action. The track goes on with methakrylate adhesive. So best to source a local MMA for that, or we can ship you a party-favor sized tube with an adorable little gun that pumps it out.
On the gudgeon plates: G-flex. Touch grind both surfaces and make sure they're CLEAN
Side note: I went into the shop this weekend to get my new UFO ready for the Rally (SO AMPED) and finally caught one on camera hovering and singing to the other UFOs! I KNEW they'd been doing this but until yesterday never had any proof. HAH!
See yall in Savannah
Cheers Dave, really appreciate it. I ordinarily use West 105/205 also but concerned that this doesn't flex enough. We've abandoned plans to use the Sikaflex and will either run with a MMA or G/Flex for the job.
Careful with the hovering UFO- might get shot down the way things are at the moment.....
