And temperature. The warmer it is (to a point) the more grip there will be. Cleveland used to have the doors shut all the time and there was crazy traction because it stayed warmer in there.

I thought mixing compounds like Jack the gripper and Paragon wasn't a good idea?

Mixing Patron, Cointreau, and lime juice works out pretty good.

Paragon straight up, or with a red bull, either way, still has the kick of a mule in the morning

jack evaporates out of the foam quicker so it's terrible for 12th scale compared to paragon. paragon is sort of like napalm it sticks in the tire. plus that jack the slipper brush is the most stupid applicator in the world. it's like trying to eat soup with a strainer. some of it gets on the tire but you better have a good apron on.
