Default Sick Grip Traction Compound Q&A Thread

Any questions or comments on the Franchise Racing Products, Sick Grip Traction Compound can be asked, and answered here!

Sick Grip Traction Compound has been used on almost any surface, Dirt, Clay, Carpet, with Rubber, and Foam Tires with great results!

Application is simple, just apply to tires, 8-10 min before hitting the track, and let dry. Your ready to go!

This mixture contains, not only a tire softener but also a tacky agent that helps to promote traction, and help to increase tire life!

Default This mixture of compound WORKS!!!!

I found the traction compound for sale on another site. Was skeptical but figured what the heck lets try it. I race mainly on clay surfaces and occasionally loose dirt. For the Clay surfaces that are hard packed and dry slick this compound makes my tires squeel due to so much traction. I have beat the field by several laps in A-Mains since using this product. I'm not going to sit here and tell you its all in the compound but I can tell you in RC Racing its all about tires and getting traction to the ground. Sick grip works for my application.

Yes they do, that's where I use it. As I haven't tried it on foam tires yet, but with rubber, it's awesome. The biggest advantage to this on rubber tires is you can set your car down and go right away. With SXT I usually have to do a bunch of warm up laps, and even the first couple laps seem icy when the race starts.

I took a bottle to a local off road track and they noticed a difference in the tires before they set the cars down. Everybody that ran it loved it.

This weekend I may try some foam tire testing in 12th scale.

I've used the Sick Grip on my 1/12 foams at the Gate, and it worked fantastic.

Also, this past Saturday I used Sick Grip on my F1 and USGT cars at Toledo's asphalt track for the UF1 Midwest series race. Won both classes.

Our club allows only odorless traction compounds. Does Sick Grip have an odor? Also, do you ship to Canada?

Recap from Wednesday night racing...

I decided it was time to pull out the 4x4 Mod SC and do some dirt racing last night, after a year long hiatus from dirt. After getting to the track late, no practice laps laid down at all, and experimenting with another brand of traction compound, I ended up qualifying 5th in the A Main out of 10. For the 2nd and final qualifier and Main I used Sick Grip. I gained over a lap in time, was able to finish on the same lap as the winner, and was able to throw the truck into any corner knowing it was going to stick and rotate around. I had never driven my truck this hard before. This compound gave me the confidence to put the truck where ever I wanted.

Great product, hope to push the product at the track I attended

Default It works

I had a chance to try this on an off road track with my 1/8 scale buggy. It might not be the perfect match for 1/8 buggy, but it works. I was surprised how the tire felt sticky, but dirt did not stick to it and cake up. I think it worked great for about 4 or 5 minutes which was perfect for getting out front on a slick track. It provides the edge I was looking for in the A Main.

Bottom line, when tack conditions are slick and nothing seems to work this is the ticket to get out front.

Default Is it in the case?

Mr. Wise, Is this in the case at the NORCAR hobby shop? I have not been to the track in a few so I don't recall if I saw it in there. Also what type of "Post-Prep" cleaning product or method do you recommend between heats?

Thanks

Finding the right product is only half the battle, using it correctly or as intended is often the part that gets missed.

Sick Grip is one of the best tire traction components out their, I have ran this product all year on a offroad clay/loamy track surface, what I have found is that on the loamy dusty tracks, the effect of more traction was not apparent, this however is running a losi 22 sct and when the track had little to a blue groove, traction was unbelievable as tire prep was simple, just wipe off the excess dirt and apply and allow to air dry

Thank you Mike for this unbelievable traction advantage over the competition here in Minnesota as it gave me multiple A main wins and the top step for the MNRC series in the Pro2 class, as Trouble managed a few wins as well and lots of TQ's thru out the year just came up a little bit short on points

now to move inside on carpet with some vta cars
