Default Traction Compound info needed

I race at two different tracks and both tracks use different traction compounds. The one track allows Paragon and the other track is strictly Jack The Gripper since it's odorless. If you have tried both out for yourself you know that Paragon has a lot more grip. Now I have heard of a odorless Paragon...How does it differ from ground effects? I'm guessing a little less grip? Is it completely odorless? or is there still a tiny bit of winter green smell in it? Is it oilly like a Jack the gripper or does it dry up more like a paragon while applying it to your tires?

Thanks,
Aaron

Yes there is 1 by Paragon called "Traction Action". There is no wintergreen smell to it at all. It works almost as good as ground effects. Instead of leaving it on for 10 minutes, leave it on for 20 minutes.

The Odor less Paragon...aka Traction Action works 100 times better than Jack the Crapper....Thats the most useless stuff on the planet!! There is no wintergreen smell at all to it!! It kinda smells like Jack the Crapper but works.

If you really want to race on high bite the spray a little on the straight away of your local track....thats what we do for club racing and its like racing at the birds!!

If I would have went to the track the past few weeks I would have killed someone after the performance I put in at the Champs!! I had to take some time off or do time in prison!! LOL

And he's not looking to hard as I talked to him yesterday and he didnt mention it!!
