I've been looking at making my own sauce. From what I can find some soda and corn starch will make some sticky stuff. Anyone got a homebrew they like to run?

Hey guys, glad to hear people are trying Gen 2 and our other sauces. Just to clear things up about freezing/separating it does start freezing at anything below 60F that is why we put the warning on the bottle and the product page. It can be stored safely anywhere between 40-120F, so the sauce will not go bad at those temperatures even though it is frozen. Once thawed it works as intended. Preferable ambient temps are 60F+ just so you don't run into the "couple of laps to warm up" issue. TDK does not contain any water in it, do not try to dilute it with water, it will NOT mix and will RUIN the sauce. You can mix any TDK sauce together if desired, we have found mixing 50/50 gen2 with odorless to help with the freezing issue a little bit but you will lose some ultimate grip. Also to cover the swelling issue with TDK High Grip, yes we noticed that was a problem for almost all of our customers so that is why decided to try something different with Gen2, it gives the same amount of grip and traction but with little to no swelling so tires and foams last much longer!

Thanks and let me know if you have any more questions about the sauce.

I tried the TDK gen 2 this past Wednesday. Worked well and smells similar to the non-odor medium grip gen 1. I only let it sit for about a minute on the tire before I wiped it off. Good stuff.
