The top guys often have their own personal mixes that aren't really shared around. I have seen Masami's "special" stuff but most use tyre tweak was part of the tyre prep.
N.B. Nosram/LRP asphalt additive is just tyre tweak

Really is up to you. Just try some different additives if you like. For example X-gear, Hybrid DIP, Trinity et etc. Different additives from what i can gather are better suited to different track conditions and track types and so on.

I would be careful with Death Grip, I think it may contain wintergreen which makes it illegal at nearly all tracks in the UK.

Trinity Red Dot is good on a cold day, but other than that Trinity Tyre Tweek is probably the most common additive.

Hi,

CS High Grip is good for temps between 23°Celsius and 30°Celsius, for more I would Use Tire Tweek or LRP Black (additives with more oil).
Must of the drivers here at the old continent are using 2 additives - One like Jack the Gripper (from Corally) or SXT1 - which have less oil - to clean the tires before apply one with more oil (Like The CS or LRP Black) warm the tires with the oild additive for 30 minutes - around 55°Celsius - and then "clean" any residues again with the first additive (the not oily one).

All this are for foam tires and with experience on Take Off Cs27.

Hope it had help.

cheers

Pedro

ive been told tyre tweek 200 can be used alone or as a aditive with another brand. essentially you apply tyre tweek 200, place the warmers on, let it cook for about 20 minutes, then wipe excess off and apply the traction compound.

try the trinity death grip. it is pritty good. always use a warmer and try different brands, as they have different characteristics. it's a bit of a black art really.
