Default Niftech traction compound, Every Round?

Niftech traction compound
foam tires (Jaco dp/dpo if it's a big race)
touring car

That's my situation. Is it really useful to apply Niftech before every race? I personally can't feel it when I skip a few races, so often I apply before the first race and before the fourth heat (main). Am I costing myself lap time by not saucing before the second and third heats?
When someone is intent on excelling in an otherwise laudable manner, does he not desire to inflict pain on others by means of his exalted status and enjoy the envy he arouses? Is there not an anticipated delight in an artist's ability to defeat his artistic rivals, which heightens his euphoria in creation?

IMO you should apply it before every round... Niftech does evaporate quickly (higher alchohol content) then most traction compounds. Although Niftech is primarily for rubber tire racing, many racers at our track have had great luck in using this for foam as well.

To answer your question about losing lap times... maybe. It all depends on the traction that is already on the track and what your set-up is. Running rounds with Niftech and without should show you on the time sheets what is better. If your laptimes are quicker with Niftech (most likely the case), then run it for all rounds.
