Awesome, and thanks Casper!

Casper runs the Green or "Verde" on his Losi Pinks and in case you don't know... It's good to follow Caspers lead

The Short Course guys at our track are really liking the benefits as we all know, those things needs all the traction they can get

Sweet, my Sticky Kicks should arrive the week before the regionals here. Hoping they can give me the edge I need in stcok Short Course. Only problem is the one guy I can't beat is one of my best friends, and I promised him I would share the stuff if it works well. Hmmmmm, maybe my order will get... ...ahem.. "lost in the mail."

so do you guys brush some on right before a run or does it pay to let it sit, or soak in? will it be just as effective or more effective to brush it on say an hour before a run? thanks

Ray recommends putting it on about 15 min before your run. I will put it on anywhere from 5-30 min before. You want to give it a little time to soak in though If your tires are wet when you hit the track it will be a little slick until the sauce wears off. If you let it soak in you should be pulling wheels from the first pull!

Casper nailed it. Give it a lil time to soak in so the tires are dry when you hit the track.

At OC/RC, we run 5 minute qualifiers so let's say I am in race 3, I will apply my Sticky Kicks at the start of race 1, basically 2 races before mine and it seems to be perfect timing.

Hit me up with any questions. I will post a video soon on the site to show you guys my method of applying it.

Thumbs up

Had a chance to try Sticky Kicks today at my local track. Outdoors with a sandy clay surface. When the weather is dry, like today, it gets blown/watered between rounds and builds a layer of dust outside as the races go on. I struggle for traction in these conditions and was hoping that Sticky Kicks would help. I used the Verde on M3 Caliber SCs for Mod Short Course and was hooked up. TQd and won with my Blitz in a mixed field of 2wd and 4wd SC trucks.

Looking forward to trying out the other compounds to see how they compare on our track.

Thanks Ray for a very good product and excellent service.

Witch compond would be the choice for a T4 on a hard packed track that get's a little dusty sometimes? Thanks

Oldandnew, I honestly do not have experience on those track conditions but from reading the previous posts, it looks like Verde worked really well.

I say try em all and see which one works best for your driving style

It smells but a very good smell. It is safe for indoor use and will not stink up the place that is for sure.
