A MSDS so that you know what youíre breathing in/getting on your skin, would be nice. Hint: itís not Kool-Aid.

Glad to see so many people liking our sauces, we made it exactly because of that danger we were all taking just being around the chemicals that us racers were using to gain traction. And since no other company has public MSDS we decided to publicize our MSDS to prove to our customers that our stuff is actually safe and what is in it. SXT had theirs for 3.0 available until a few weeks after ours came out, not sure if coincidence or not.

I have also posted over in the "Tire Sauce Recipe" thread the preferred saucing methods using our sauces to gain the most traction yet save the tires and foams.

If you guys have any questions feel free to reach out to me through the forums!

Has anyone ordered the Gen 2 product? Possible freezing below 60 degrees would be an issue for most of us indoor RC guys in the winter.

I ordered some today. I have using the low odor exclusively since last spring. I found the high grip softened the tires too much. I use the sauce by applying it to all 4 wheels then immediately removing it with a rag. Doing it this way doesn't seem to stretch the tires at all.

I used the high bite stuff for some time but found that the tires stretched/swelled too much.

Where did you see information about freezing below 60 degrees?

Heard many people have the same reaction, try mixing the high and low if you have them. That was a popular combo for their local driver. I'll have to ask him about the new sauce

I agree with the TDK high traction causing the tires to swell. I've found that simply switching to the odorless after the first couple of runs keeps the rubber in good condition.

I love the idea of non-toxic tire sauce but I also found that it caused my tires to swell. Also, both types of TDK give great initial grip but then the grip would fade halfway into the run.

It doesn't freeze, what happens is that some of the ingredients separate (think of congealed fat in water) until you warm it up again.

It most likely has to do with the coconut oils. Cocnut oil is a solid (frozen) at room temperature.

Ran the Gen 2 stuff this weekend, seemed to take a couple laps to warm up (my first experience with anything TDK). It did start to freeze up around 55. I took it out of my bag this morning after sitting in the garage at 40 degrees all night, it was frozen.

I usually use SK Purple, it was hard to directly compare need to try it again this weekend.
