Pretty sure that didn't answer the question because I didn't see anything about what application to use each one for?

Looks like a good product other than the big warnings saying it causes cancer and reproductive harm!

Its good stuff.

I use the Verde on the clay compound tires and when the track gets dry.
The rojo seems to work best for me with the M3 compound type tires.
The blanco well... Ive never used this one before.

Im sure when raydog sees this thread he will post exactly what each was destined for.

Everyone has a different opinion on the compounds but I prefer Red with the clay surface is more dry and Green when it is more wet... the White seems to work best when the track is just right.

However, with that being said, ask two different racers and you will get two different answers Kinda like two drivers with totally different set-ups running the same laps times.

does this stuff eat the foams or hurt the tires, when i say that, i mean make them wear faster? every traction compound ive run either softens the foams and increases tire wear.

You are in for a pleasant surprise. It does not eat foams nor Tires. I can honestly say that I have longer tire wear with Sticky Kicks then I had when I ran my tires dry of with other nasty sauces (I wont name names ).

Actually the guys used to love it for on-road Asphalt racing when they ran it in the parking lot at OC/RC.

Yep....this stuff works awesome. I was recommended this by Casper from the Losi forum. I works as well as if not better than the "other stuff" without the nasty smell. Now the wifey doesn't scream at me when I clean my tires in the sink

I'm pretty sure I recognize the Roja from my days in a print shop. We used something suspiciously similar to condition the belts so they didn't leave marks on the paper. Back then, I used it on cap tires on a concrete oval track. It was the bomb-diggity and definitely an advantage. Also, on my son's Tamaya Mini and TC rubber tires for much better results and wear then say "P!#%^&n" wintergreen stuff. But back to Sticky Kicks, I used Roja last summer outdoors at "the Plex" and did notice some tire wear. The traction was much better on the dry, slick track especially in the groove.....could pull wheelies if not careful. But, then moved to the Verde and got much better tire wear with basically the same results. I use the Blanco to condition new tires prior to mounting. It removes all the oxidation and refreshes the rubber after sitting in a warehouse and on a shelf for a while. Definitely helps with seating/gluing the bead. After dremeling your bead, wipe thoroughly with Blanco to clean and condition the bead for a perfect bond. My buddy uses the crap out my Roja on his SCT tires and LOVES IT! Around here SCT is primarily box-stock, so he feels it's the only way to go. On those SCT tires we have not noticed really any wear, even on the dry, 100+ degree clay in Nebraska racing outdoors.
