These chemicals to some parents can be a point that might hold them back from allowing their kids to race. Has there been any companies that have thought of using citrus, grain, or other biodegradable ingredients to address this?

What we did was take a old Niftech bottle with the label off. Then we put jack the crapper in it. It blue so if any one say any thing just point out the Niftech is clear and jack is blue.

It was much better after we did that.

Its too bad no one sells those bottle types empty for us normal consumers, so then we could transfer our crappy bottles of compounds into them.

Less smell, less dripping, easier coverage, and no lap accidents either.

lets see paragon has been around since the 80's, we should see some older rc racers who have been exposed to it for the last 20 years start dropping like flies or at least become ill, but don't know why or how they have cancer.

All it's going to take is one "Little Johny" drinking up a bunch of Jack or Niftech and you'll see a big change in the labels. How the heck is a hospital supposed to treat a kid for drinking "Jack the slipper" when they have no clue what's in it? Same for all of the compounds. Funny thing is, all the major sanctioning bodies around the world turn a blind eye to the chemicals we use.

I know just as many people that get headaches from the "odorless" compounds as people that get headaches from Paragon. Add all the tire smoke from the tire truers at a carpet race and you've got a nice cocktail of not good.

Oh, and Traction Action is the "odorless" Paragon by the way. It's actually not that bad.
Perfect point Fred!!! These are basically a cocktail of chemicals. It doesnt matter wheather it is odorless or stinks like cow poop. It's a cock tail of chemicals with NO ingredient label. How in the world does this happen when EVERYTHING under the sun by law is supposed to have some sort of list of ingredients OR a MSDS sheet for consumers to consult for treatment information in case of ingestion, inhalation, or topical exposure issues occur.
