if you look in this forum there is a thread calle like r/c secrets or something....

explains a good way to soften losi tires.

I like zipfree by trinity when the track is moist. But mainly i only use sauce in the winter.

Anyway you do like he said spin the tire on a wrench and spray alittle motorspray on and light it. Get the heat in and rub some death grip or zipfree in with a toothbrush especially when they are new.

Makes them like gooey gumballs and provide excellent traction on wet clay. We do this in the winter at our indoor track. You all should check our place out every now and again.


what i wrote in the thread.

I only do this with losi tires though.... practice on a older tire.

I use CRC 3-36, it's like a industrial strength WD-40. Put it on and let it soak in for 10 minutes, then wipe it off. Within a couple of minutes you can grab the tire, and when you let it go, you will feel it not wanting to let go of your hand. Now you can get away with not wiping it off, but when you put it on the track it will be like driving on ice, but after a couple of laps it'll be hooked up. You can get this stuff from "Fastinall stores". It's a little known secret

For a guy who works in a hobby shop he is not very in touch with what is going on. I even knew what the Reino's Ragu was. Come on Tony, get up to speed!!
