Do you get sick of it after a day of racing in the outdoor on asphalt?
And in the long run? After years of rc-racing?
What additives work on asphalt really depends on the type of asphalt.
We only ever had one permanent indoor asphalt track in the UK which has now shut down, looking at different setup sheets for it, we used CS High Grip and Sticky Fingers, so carpet additive.
If the asphalt is outdoors it will get dust in it and it will 'weather' over time.
When our track was relayed carpet additive was good for a while, but slowly, carpet additive became less effective.
So we tend to use oil based outdoors, CS Max Grip, Rheinard MR33 etc. If the track regularly runs nitro that can also throw another spanner in the works.
With the exception of newly laid asphalt, we havent; come across any outdoor asphalt track where carpet additive works better.
P.S. On carpet, most tend to use LRP carpet additive or the Nosram equivalent (same stuff) as both have spnge applicator on the end like boot polish stuff.
