It's hard to find, ive never tried it but I have found it on this site. Seems popular with the gun crowd.

Look at on-road RC car stuff for some nice sauce applicators and options.

You don't need a lot. I use 1 full soaked dab, quickly touch/brush all 4 tires, then go back and apply it a little more evenly. Then I scrub in with a toothbrush. Wait 5-10 minutes.

I had someone locally tell me they tried using the Liquid Wrench Chain Lube, and it's even more sticky! I thought the Lubricating Oil flavor was plenty enough lol.

The original teal cap variety has been discontinued. Another thing that really softens up the tire is Rem-oil which also dries quicker.

That is correct. I was told the teal cap spray linked above is what some were using now. Once again, i have never tried the teal stuff.

The teal cap stuff smells awful... I do collision repair for a living and work with gnarly chemicals daily so my tolerance level is pretty high, and in fact I actually like the smell of Buggy Grip, but that teal cap stuff is just horrible to be around.

Okay, thanks guys. I've been thinking about using some tire sauce, but looking for the ideal combo. Has anyone tried the std yellow cap liquid wrench on JC's soft compound tires rather than just on JC's gold compound? I'll think I'll just give it a try and see.

We have used it on JC Greens, but not Blues. Worked really well on Green Dirt Webs and didn't accelerate tire wear too much.

I think I have tried every clay compound tire made... I have a huge duffle bag full of tires just for club racing. These tires are amazing at OCRC especially with the LW. At other clay/dirt tracks I would so overall AKA's Typo's have more traction but the dirt webs are much smoother in cornering. AKA's are too twitchy sometimes I think. I mix it up.. sometimes AKA's in back and webs or barcodes up front depending on the track.

I have tried 3 LW's and I use blue for the most part... But the Yellow Top Yellow labeled one I think gives the most grip but your foams will last about 4 runs no joke...

This all just one mans opinion

closed cell? because most traction stuff will tear up open cell foams anyway.

LW be track dependant. Tried on my clay sc typos and no go at sdrc. WD 40 works much better for me. Did not try on my clay buggy typos but assume results would be the same.

Is it the "Dry Lubricating" Liquid Wrench that you guys are using? I drive indoors on clay at OCRC.

Matt where did you fine this? I have been looking for something to replace the spraying. I know that sweep makes some bottles as well.

I still can't get Golds. Just got some blacks today and gonna stiffen up the outer sidewall a bit to control the tire sidewall roll, my original set has massive sidewall roll. I think it'll be right on the money, but you never know.LOL!
