Thumbs up calcium cloride.

Some tracks put calcium downxtochlp traction. What do you think of it? I thinks it a hassle because it never comes off your body and ruins alot of metal parts. What do to think of this traction method?

The track I'm with only uses it during a track rebuild "every 6-8 weeks" to eliminate grass growth due to soil clay mixture being turned over. During the first day of racing on the track all drivers are told and will blow off their cars after each time on the track. After the first week of racing we don't normally see rusted screws or any damage to metal parts. We just use stright water between rounds.

It really helps a track hold moisture. Our track only uses it a few times a year for big races. The only complaint we get is that some folks wear out tires because the blue groove gives too much traction.

We have used it, Great for grooving up a track..Really bad when wet, Destroys aluminum, and lexan paint, Makes steel rust really fast. If you run on it, clean your stuff as soon as possible.
