Default More Traction Comp ?s

I have been using niftech and previously paragon ground fx, this is for rubber tires on asphault. A friend of mine let me use some of his Trinity Red Dot and holy crap it was sticky. Then I was told they dont make it anymore, lol. So what is the next best thing?

Have you tried STX? Worked great at HW and all the other places too.

Has anyone tried making home made traction compounds? It sounds like it would work. Maybe ask the chemistry teacher to help.
