Default slippery surfaces

my co workers and I mess around a lot in our shop during our down time. I am not 100% sure what the floor is coated with, but it is a typical auto shop with a nice shiny floor that gets cleaned nightly.

Right now, I run some foams on my TC4. Is there anything you guys would recommend to get the best traction possible?

Probably some soft rubber slicks or maybe even rally block type patterns.

Not sure how well wet tyres would work on a polished floor but they tend to be an even softer compound than the slicks.

floor may be dusty, even with the daily cleaning.

some pink foams may work.

Some jaco yellows soaked in red dot or something simular would probably work well.

Jaco Nitros are REEEEEL sticky and not just for nitro cars. You will probably not need to use traction compound either.

Ok so I need some soft rubber. Sounds like a plan. They will go on the "To buy list"
