You have to stay in the line to be able to run slicks. Are all of your laps within .5 seconds of one another? If not, get some treaded tires, have an adult buy you some of this hog snot stuff, and work on being able to run an entire battery at race pace without a single crash. That is the problem with this forum, 9/10th of the people can't even run a clean race, yet they are all concerned with the latest part or pro setup.

Quick question for everyone posting in this thread. From your last race day, how many of you could count on one hand the number of times a turn marshal had to fix your mistakes? Over two qualifiers and the main I had 3. Really it was just over the qualifiers, as I didn't have a single crash in the main.

+1 on that mentality. I've been going nuts in stock with guys driving over their limit, crashing into you, looking for any edge they can get but they can't keep from being wheels-in-the-air over a 5 min race.

Race like that in a real car and you die!

+1. I allways fill up when Walmart has those middle isle displays of the oversized TAG body spray.

Girl at the register must have thought I had some really stinky problems or something.

I dont crash that much with or without it maybe 2-3x a race and I do race with treaded tires I always have I dont get any sorta grip without it weather im in the groove or not and I dont have to run an entire battery down to be at race pace and I dont buy the latest part fads because I dont think theyll really help

It's some great stuff. Sticky kicks red/ white and Reinos ragu are the only sauces I've used and had GREAT luck with.
