Default Newbie question

Is there any additional trick to put the tire warmer onto the wet treated tires or I just need to use it as usual and place directly?

What is the advantge of this procedure versus let it dry at room (hall) temparature?

Thanks ;-)

Does the "Jack the Gripper" come in a metal can or a plastic bottle?

The 'Jack Gripper' I ve got came in plastic bottle which stated odourless. Not sure is it as good as the one that come in a metal can?

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

Hope it had help.

cheers

Yeah, that SXT 1.0 is good stuff. You should try the SXT 2.0 if you like Tweak.

If Austria is liking the traction sauce I need to talk to someone about getting more over there for people to try. I also have new plastic bottles that do not leak and much better.

I would mix something like FX II with Tire Tweak. Of course I need to plug my SXT 2.0 to use instead of Tweak. You may not have to mix it, just apply one, then the other on top.

Paragon Traction Action is the best odor-less additive i've used in years.

Thumbs up New Additives

With the Take Off tires out of the market and with a lot of peole using Much More , Sweep, V-Tec and Sorex tires.
It would be interesting to collect the best experiences each one had with his tires and additives.

The trend is to use 2 types of additive and warm the tires .

Tire Tweak is still a favorite but the new ones from Much More are also going well.

In Austria for Asphalt with the V-Tec 30 is the asphalt one from LRP that is mostly used and warmed for better absortion durin 25 minutes at 65Celsius.

please share your experience

After applying do you always wipe it out before race?

For TC rubber asphalt:
I use LRP and Xenon gold as allround. For high traction i use tire tweak.
I stopped using CS high grip as it "burned" my tires and made the tires loose grip in the 5,6 final.........it was like drifting
