Default Tire Grip

Does anyone have any suggestion for a off road "homemade" tire grip for recipe besides using the usual pre-bottled stuff like Sticky Kicks, Paragon, WD-40, or Simple Green?

I'm just kidding I dont really mix that. Some guy at my track was bragging about deisel fuel with something else but I dont remember. Honestly I have found to be the best Trinity Indigo and I dont feel the need to use anything else. If I run out I grab the WD40 which feels like a mild grip solution.

Ive tried all of that except diesel I normally use stuff that a guy at my track makes but I no longer meet the "age" requirements to buy it as a kid ruined all of his stuff with it and his stuff is top notch one application can give you all the grip you want for a day and a half of racing the only complaint is to much grip so I kinda need a supplement

Different tracks will respond differently to tire sauce. Sauces with a lot of oil content will help keep the tread clean longer and your traction will come from the tread pattern itself. Sauces with less oil will make the tires stickiness pick up a little dirt/clay from the surface of the track and your traction is created through the light coating that sticks to your tires and the abrasiveness it creates against the surface of the track. So I would say try WD-40 first and if you notice it makes you feel loose, then a less oily sauce will work better. The original Trinity Buggy grip has been best for me in those situations. Its hard to find though. Lately I have been glueing fresh tires, spray with wd-40 after the glue dries. Leave sit for a couple hours, then wash with simple green. At the track I just use water.

So you have to be 18 to buy tire sauce where you race? How did this kid ruin all his stuff with tire sauce? I just don't get how so many people are so terrible at this hobby. If you have to be 18, get someone else at the track to buy it for you, or have mommy or daddy get it for you.

I can't buy it because some ten year old spilled it allover his stuff and ruined it but this stuff.is like nothing else it is EXTREMELY sticky and gives you so much grip but there is next to no build.up of.dirt.and.after the race just clean them they are just as sticky if not stickier than before
