I am running my tyres on a rubber mat, speed is the most essential thing, due to the lack of traction compound in Singapore, i currently using rubber cleaner to maintain the stickness of the tyres.

Is there a lack of traction compound in Singapore? Don't hobby shops like Swan models carry 'em? Look around for stuff like Racer's Edge, Parago or Corally's stuff like the TC-3 (i think that's the name... could be wrong. )

Your right alvin.

Corally TC-3, this stuff has mega stick but don't leave it in your pit bag or your bag will stink forever.

Yeah baby! However I usually use Racer's Edge Mod compound 'cause it smells fruity and enough for club level racing
