I use that as well and everyone that pits around me complains about how bad it smells. It works great though!!

We run at a pink taper pin/bk bar track and have been using primarily Zip Free. Motor spray, then light them up (I don't but most guys do), toothbrush in some Zip Free--throw them in a zip lock and you are good to go. A buddy put me on to heating the tires with a hairdryer or heatgun right before brushing them with the zip, it seems to open the pores in the rubber to let the zip soak in and really gets them gummy,.

I personally really like Buggy Grip and would use it but we can't run it because of the noxious odor. I don't mind the odor--although it is pretty nasty stuff to get on your skin.

whats the part number for the "zip free" everyone is talking about? the stuff we used on our pink taper pin slicks was "zip grip free" but it seems like they stopped making it.
Part #Rc 6683 (zip grip free)

we found that zip grip free softens the rubber AND makes it sticky.
