Default Tire Traction Additives

Hello
I currently use Simple Green to clean and condition tires. I use Buggy Grip for traction. I read somewhere that some people add suntan lotion to simple green for traction as well. I am looking for any other techniques for getting more traction out of 1/10 scale off-road?

Thanks for any other information
Doug

I used to use Buggy Grip. I use a local guys grip. Back in the day you could use diesel fuel.

Is your local buggy grip for sale or is it for Home use only
I think I will stay away from the diesel.

Thanks for the information

simple green on pro-line tire, wd-40 on losi tires. It takes about 4 laps to burn off the initial wd-40, it will feel like you are on ice. But, once it gets burned off, it hooks up...
