70 allergies? Man, someone should have washed thier hands before picking up that track burger!

I hear you Martin...traction compund is nasty stuff. However, I think eliminating traction compounds would kill racing. Some people have a hard enough time getting thier cars around the track. If you took away traction compound they would be completely lost.

hey Martin that may be all fine and dandy with you touring car guys but I love 12th scale and I doubt you could make a mod 12th scale get around any track without the use of some additive and still keep some sense of control over it. and as for asphalt racing I still use paragon outdoors with foam tires and my mod touring car. and I ran paragon on my rubber tyres on pavement also.

I believe that motorspray probably has more carcinogens in it then tire compound. I use to love my 1.1.1 tricloroethylene but then Martin you probaby want cell phones banned as they cause cancer also.

jack the slipper may not smell but yes it's toxic and i hate that stupid applicator "brush"

That is why I use these for all my traction compounds.

If you use a wheel nut wrench to spin your wheels while you wipe it on. Covers evenly, doesn't fly in your face or mouth, and doesn't drip all over your pit table. If you use a shop towel to wipe it off, for those who do that, then you won't get it on your skin.
Now the inhalation...Well heck if the cigarettes, meth or pot I smoked as a youth didn't kill me I think I can take a day at the track...Granted after two days strait at SoCal I do get dizzy, but that place smells like a warm can of wintergreen oil....LOL
A coupel days at a big race with care taken to not get your tire tractions all over the place you remove about 99% of the hazard.
Your lungs heal very quick if you not standing around huffing the fumes...
Just my point of view.

Guys let me get this out of the way first and foremost. As we have shown last year, I will get answers to your questions as quickly as possible.

I do have a job and unfortunately with the fine internet police at work monitoring traffic, There may be a little delay in answers.

Please be patient and I will answer all of those burning questions.

**Side note to Derek (Nonstopone)**
Thanks for answering this one for me.

Ok off my soap box
