wd-40 is awesome for rubber tire, not only cleans the surface but does give some additional grip. I used this in combo with niftech My experiance comes on carpet, but it shouldnt be any different for tarmac. (at least thats my plan this summer)

The JACO tires don't seem to last very long compared to Sorex. I would say maybe 10 runs on JACO greens and 12 on blue.

Brad Johnson from Hurricane Motorsports has a new rubber tire cleaner/conditioner coming out soon.
He let us test it on Sun and I was very impressed with how it increased traction.

are we allowed to make a poll on here that creates a tally of popular tires (rp, sorex, jaco, muchmore, cs, etc.)?

if so, someone who knows the full gambit of tires available should make one. in particular a poll that is geared towards rubber asphalt since that is where all the controversy is right now due to lack of sorex.
