I don't know if that is the same stuff or not, but that is just STUPID. She was using 3 products all at the same time including patches on her body. She was not imformed and careless, though a tragic event. Please keep in mind that you can die from water poisoning, in fact in happened recently in california during a radio station promotion.

Am I missing something? Paragon does have a odorless compound. I haven't really read through the thread but if it is about smell then go odorless. If you are taliking about chemiclas being in them overall (odor or odorless) then I can understand. But if it is about smell....that is something that can easily be remedied.

We have a carpet track but are only allowed to use odorless compunds and I don't have a problem at the track at all....Now at the IIc....????

It will be orderless at IIC too, so no worries there. Last two years it has been nothing but Jack.

Hey yeti, can we use the Paragon odorless compund at the IIC? I ask because I do like the odorless Paragon more than I do Jack. It seems like with the Paragon, my car is stuck on the first lap, with the Jack it seems that it takes a lap or 2.

They have been strictly Jack for that is what Scotty uses at his home track and all he has used at IIC as well. You will not have to buy any for it is part of your registration.
