Default What sauce is everyone using?

I have a RDX and I like it a lot, but what tire sauce for carpet seems to be the best secret formula?

If they allow Paragon Ground Effects, it is usually the most consistant. Most tracks dont allow it because of the wintergreen smell. I also like the TQ Orange compound. It works good. The track I usually run at up here only allows Jack the Gripper made by Corally. I think it sucks, but it is odorless. It comes with a brush to put it on and is a major Pain in the a$$.

I use either TQ orange MAX compound, or Jack the gripper. The Grippers applicator does suck, and the TQ ball is alot easier to use.

I have been using TQ Plus (black label) and Paragon FXII. Both seem to work well, and do what they are supposed to do.

I use Corally Jack the Gripper with a modified can. A TQ cover and fuzzy brush.

Thanks for the input guys. I've raced TC before, but getting back into it two years later, just making sure nothing changed with the sauces.

Thanks

Our track is only allowing Jack the Gripper, or Niftech.. anyone have any experience with Niftech? It's supposed to dry without residue, but does it perform any better?
