Default Wchich tire additive? TC+rubber+carpet

I'd like to know what tire additive do you think is the best for rubber tires on carpet.
I used LRP carpet(old and new version), all Corallys(TC1-TC4), and some other. But one guy(friend of my friend) from UK told me that almost all racers in UK use CS-electronic tire additive and it's the best. Which exactly is good? CS produce about 4 or 5 tire additive.

Is it possible that one tire additive is better for some tires(like for example Take Off CS) and other is better for other tires(like Vtec)?

Thank you in advance for your reply.
Sorry for my english. It isn't my national language.

i've tried Paragon ground effex and muchmore acute v-made. I can't tell the difference in performance. Next step is to try the muchmore blue sap.

lrp is easy to drive but only the first lap is good

cs is very hard to drive and unconsistant + cornerspeed lacks a little

fx-2 is by far the best

notice that you never heat in carpet addatives EXCEPT! fx-2

Paragon or Jack the Gripper by corrally are both good. I would normally say to use what is used at your local track to get that "compatible" grip but CS just isnt one of the better compounds
