We are allowed to use any tire traction compound.

I have played with and prefer Paragon. I have some of the Sticky Grips stuff , mostly for offroad though, and just picked up some of the yellow MuchMore goop.

I was in Tucson two years ago and many of the off road drivers used diesel for traction compound on the dirt track at Competition Hobbies. Their complaint was that it destroyed the inserts.

I agree. What's amazing to me, you see these inhaling those fumes and then they're outside smoking.
