I've been running TQ Purple lately. TQ Orange works great, too. I've got a can of TQ Blue, just haven't used it yet. (If you haven't noticed, I like TQ. lol)

I prefer the racer's choice TQ pro 8 minute formula. It smells like oranges and works great.

Well that one sure isn't odorless! It has a terrible smell. I believe the TQ-line of traction compounds are great for foams, but not so effective with rubber tires.
I use Corally's TC-2. Its superb with rubber tires and is odorless. A good product also is LRP's stuff that is completely totally odorless and in a nice stick can/container/whatever. It doesn't have the Corally's grip though. I often use it in the front.
I've never tried foams with a TC.

Try using Simple Green. Thats what I use, cleans the tires and makes them nice and sticky. No oder and no nasty unknown chemicals. Cheap to buy also.
