Default Carpet Additive Differences

Can anyone remember what the difference is between Corally's Carpet Jack and Jack The Gripper?

Going through the large box of additives I've got and trying to work out what each of them is suitable for.

Lol, thanks, but I have MR33 and CS High grip already (both used occasionally)
But was wondering if anyone can cast their mind back to using the 'Jack' additives.

Damian,

I have used jack the ripper outdoors mainly on foams for pro10 and 12th cars.

Cheers

They're just 2 different carpet additives. Carpet Jack came later than Jack the gripper. From memory, it had more grip.

Think of them as being like LRP Carpet 1 vs LRP Carpet 2........

If I remember correctly, the carpet jack is for sure stronger, or more grip for carpet. Jack the gripper can be used for carpet or asphalt but its main point was its near odorless attribute. I think if you open the carpet jack, you will find a strong smell. That was/is a big problem for many of us in small indoor tracks.

If anyone else remembers differently please contribute.
