lol I buy my tire sauce from Warehouse 3. Team associated makes it then sends it to BK. I know there is wintergreen, acetone, and lots of other ingredients The stuff is SOOO strong though. I don't mind the smell. It is $10 a bottle but uses up very quickly.

Our track has tons of grip, you shouldn't need super sticky tires. I use the SK white and think it works really well, zip free worked well as did devils spit. I haven't used the trinity blue or green yet, but haynes has been using the green lately..

My son and I used to use Buggy Grip blue at the clay track we run on but lately I have just been cleaning mine as I feel the BG gives you too much grip for the first few laps and I am more consistent without it .

When the track has moisture in it we run slicks and it has a ton of grip without any sauce at all but sometimes at bigger races it can dry out and then pins and saucing the tires is the way to go .

I've tried all of that at our track on the past two layouts but I still dont get enough traction have tried the ghot pins and broken in m4s still nothing Charlies stuff in my opinion is the best stuff out there that ive tried im not a great driver to begin with but I can feel a huge difference/advantage when I use his stuff

Full slick M4 is the combo you want.

Yep , almost everyone at the track does . 1-2 race days on a set of green pressure points or barcodes . And a headache to boot! But the traction is very very good.
