Our club has run spec compounds for year. To keep the odor down and for some health conserns and neigbors conserns we use less offencive sauses on our tires.

currently we only allow:
TQ Racers edge(3 of them smell like orange hand cleaner)
Corally JACK THE GRIPPER(no smell at alll)

tq orange smells a little like citrus but its a very light pleasant smell kinda makes you want a sunkist drinl!
but if it really has to be orderless it must be jack the gripper it works well on foam and rubber!

I use TQ Orange (aka TQ Mod I believe) whenever I can. My pit box has that nice orage fragrance. Sure beats the old Paragon smell!

i tryed trinity foam traction compound recently. it smell like those cream muscle relaxants you can buy for sporting injuries.

what i'm wondering is if the active agent in trinity traction compound for foam is the same as these in the muscle creams? (called "deep heat in oz) if so, would these creams work as a substitute? a bit like suncream lotion works for foams as well?

Paragon works alot better but if ya get a whole room fullof people using it gets a little overwhelming. On another thread alot of posts said that TQ was bad for the carpet. Can anyone confirm this?

Orion odourless street juice is popular here in the UK for 1/12th racing.

The second most popular is Corally - Jack the Gripper

Both seem to hook up well.

Our local club used to allow only the Trinity Zip Free, but we have since changed over to the TQ Orange line or the Corally Jack The gripper compounds. The strong smell was the deciding factor to switch from the Trinity products. They also all seem to be cancer causing agents which is a big concern as well.

The TQ sauce goes onto the rubber tires nicely but it does have a distinct citris small and getting the can to seal properly is impossible. I have to keep mine in a zip-lock bag otherwise my entire pit box ends up coated. The cotton dauber is nice but why the heck isn't it incorporated into the lid like other brands? Dumb move there.

The Corally product is virtually odourless and the can does seal without leaking. Thumbs up for that. Areas that could be better are the applicator which is nothing more than a cheesy plastic brush and this sauce doesn't cling to rubber as well as the TQ product. It tends to sheet off the rubber tires which negates its effect to a degree.
