You'd think after 25 years, they could upgrade the video camera...

It is an odorless rule and probably 99% of the onroad guys just use SXT anyway. Some of the euros will use Hudy or maybe Spider, but that is fairly rare.

Do you really think ANY of the traction compound out there is healthy? Just cause they don't smell, don't mean that's the case.......

LOL
I think the minute amount of poison we get from tire sauce pales in comparison with what we come into contact in every day life. Do you wear a gas mask when you fuel your car?
For that matter, is any plastic product safe? It's mostly made from petroleum products with a healthy dose of this and that. You'd probably have a fit if you knew what chemicals you are exposed to every day. Just do a quick search on the health effects of Teflon and it's derivatives for starters.
Don't sweat the petty stuff, pet the sweaty stuff. lol
