I discovered something about sticky kicks this summer, if you use it on asphalt. It permanently changes the tire. When the track temp gets above 115-120F the tires just get shredded even if you didn't sauce the tires since 2 weeks ago. My cars are all completely covered in tire dust after just a 6 min main. It worked GREAT before the summer heat hit. So if you are using sticky kicks on asphalt, toss your tires in your pit box before they are gone, and save them for the fall, get yourself a new set for the summer.

I think its a testament to how soft sticky kicks makes tires, even if you haven't used it in a few weeks. Unsauced proline m2 compound works quite well when it gets that hot. At the beginning of the season when it was still a little chilly sticky kicks made a HUGE difference

During the Summer months you may notice your bottle gets sucked in a lil bit in the heat. Just crack open the top for a few minutes and the bottle will return to normal

I tried Sticky Kicks blanco this past weekend on my F1 car with foams on a medium grip carpet track. Read about it in RobK's F1 blog. Just a couple of squirts for a light coat and let it sit for a couple of minutes, wiped off the residue and went on the track. I'm a believer, stupid traction, so much easier than all the others I've used. Will be using this from now on.

Today I got my order I placed this Wednesday. That was fast. Does not go well on tacos. I'm excited to experiment with the three sauces. Is there a recommendation for on-road asphalt during the hot summer (I saw on the site to use Blanco)? From what I understand the order of softest to soft goes (Roja, Blanco then Verde).

I will be able to test off road next weekend.

Exactly. Red, white then green. You should start with the white compound first for asphalt. Please feel free to provide some feedback when you're done testing. Thanks man.
