there is no single best additive for every track you need to find out what the majority use as use that, reason being other additives may react with it and give strange grip characteristics

this is evident at my local carpet track where it has a lot of LRP and nosram water based additive used, spider grip ended up giving weird traction

Default Gription

Gotta try this stuff. Works great on low and high traction tracks.

That's the most consistent combo I have found outdoors, running VTA. Usually works every time.
