Default Rubber Tire Conditioner and Sause

I have been racing a fairly short time and I tried out this rubber tire conditioner and sauce called Reino's Ragu. It was amazing how much traction and bite I got over a dry, dusty, hard, pack track (offroad). It is supposed to work just as good or better than Buggy Grip 2.

I have heard the stock tires (Losi silver step pin) that came with the Team Losi 8ight Buggy Kit are not the best, but I used the Reino's Ragu on them and the tires worked great last weekend at the track. They gave me a lot of bit on the tight turns.

I was pretty impressed. Maybe they can improve my racing skills. Time will tell.

Manny

Ragu is even more potent than buggy grip.
Works great at both our indoor clay dirt track and outdoor dirt tracks.
We've been using at our indoor track for almost a year now and it makes a huge difference. Works on both proline's and panther types of tires.

It can be sprayed on about 15 min before a run. If you are in a hurry you can use a heat gun to help it dry faster just make sure the tires aren't wet when you hit the track.

They also make some called Reino's marinade. It REALLY softens up the tires but has to be applied the night before but makes a huge difference on loose tracks where you need all the traction you can get.

We've run it on 8th tires, truggy tires, gas truck, electric truck and buggies.

They are even using it on onroad rubber tires now as well.

Carl:

The key when using the Reino's marinade is to apply it to the tires at least the night before, but the best bet is to do it days before your next race to insure the tire conditioner has enough time to soften the tires. Then apply the spray when you are at the track.

I will have to give you a buzz in the next few days on how my race went last week.

The Ragu and Marinade are awesome!!

He's also got some new stuff out for prepping tires for glue. I used it a few weeks ago and my tires haven't flung apart yet.

Where do you find the stuff? No listing on the site when I checked. Can it turn play tires(XTR) into practice tires?
