Paragon (Wintergreen) is not illegal in all States or by ROAR rules for that matter.

We used Paragon at the asphalt nats last year and also at the Carpet Nats at Mike's 2-3 years ago. Don't know if they used it this year at the asphalt nats, but I bet they did.

No, if it contains wintergreen it will be illegal, smell is irrelavant (though not nice)

Web MD

Wintergreen is an herb. Wintergreen oil is made by steam processing of warmed, water-soaked wintergreen leaves. The leaves and oil are used to make medicine.

Wintergreen leaf is used for painful conditions including headache, nerve pain (particularly sciatica), arthritis, ovarian pain, and menstrual cramps. It is also used for digestion problems including stomachache and gas (flatulence); lung conditions including asthma and pleurisy; pain and swelling (inflammation); fever; and kidney problems.

Some people use small doses of wintergreen oil to increase stomach juices and improve digestion.

Wintergreen leaf is sometimes applied directly to the skin as a wash for achy joints (rheumatism), sore muscles, and lower back pain.

Wintergreen oil is applied to the skin as a “counterirritant” to relieve muscle pain. Counterirritants work by causing irritation that reduces pain and swelling in the underlying tissue. Wintergreen oil is also used to kill germs on the skin.

In manufacturing, wintergreen is used as a flavoring agent in food, candies, teas, and in pharmaceutical products.

How does it work?
Wintergreen leaf contains an aspirin-like chemical that might reduce pain, swelling, and fever.

Good to hear. You should make it to some of the tracks north of you. WGT is doing well, especially in the Fseara series. I prefer 12th myself, which sadly is not popular on asphalt. If you race at Jeff's look up fermanracer, he's a good dude.

I've noticed that different traction compounds work better with different brand tyres. What tyres were RPs tested with? Or shall I say, which tyres are best with RP?

Regarding tests with additive #2, tyres used where Ride Rex 34/30, LRP G32/36/CPX, Mtrix carpet and Matrix foams.

All tyres performed better with RP.
