I'm always left happy after reading these traction compound threads that no one seems to think Tequila is bad when inhaled.

And when they get really bad, they get transported on luggage carts.

Gotta love denial

BTW, IMHO paragon works like no other traction compound...
No denial here. I drink, I smoke, I get high, eat lots of red meat, and I use Paragon. I know one of them will kill me eventually, but the racer part of me wants to see which one wins.

You're not leaving it your hands long enough. Don't wipe it off for twenty minutes and I guarantee your hands will be tingling.

here we go again...............................


if you really wanna freak out over something, the next time you see a cockroach scurrying about give it a shot of motor spray. while you can douse one with half a can of blackflag and it'll keep moving, one drop of motor spray and it flips over and starts a-kicking.


go ahead and debate

Isn't that basically sugar treated asphalt? Anyone ever try that rubber stuff they put on gym floors?

I do not like coming home from events smelling like wintergreen, and my wife certainly does not either. Certainly there should be a better way.

It seems to me carpet is king, sure would be nice if there was a better and cheaper way than carpet or asphalt. I do recall there was a there was a track out here in Michigan that was indoor asphalt that eventually rolled out a carpet to keep attendance up.

lol @ everyone...
its really not a big issue like this seems to be
simple solution = DONT USE TRACTION COMPOUND!!

If i need a performance enhancement like that to gain an advantage for a win, then well I dont feel like I deserved that win. And if you beat me and you are using traction compound well then I guess you just wanted the trophy more than I did. If I beat you without compound and you had compound, then I'm awesome and you should try drinking the stuff next time :P
