Default Trinity Black Death Comm. Drops?

I was wondering if anyone has used the Trinity Black Death comm. drops, and what you thought of it? The Tribo is hard to get here, and so I was thinking about using the Trinity, what do you think?
Thanks

I kind of like TRIBO, send big Jim $9.00 cash and you will get your Tribo in two days. Its worth it.

If you want black death to your comm, then use them. Order some tribo from Jim......only other thing I would even consider using is Zubaks, but even then, tribo is still better.

Hey Guys,

I dont seem to be able to find the Tribo anywhere in AUS
Mind if I ask who is Jim, and does he ship to AUS?

i have and seldom use the black death drops. I'f you want to use them, use them sparingly, and don't put much on. I've burned up two stock motors using it, if your very careful about how many drops you put in, how you do a short break in(rolling car around) then you'll be fine. Don't just drop it in, put thecar down, and nail the gas. I seldom use it now, because it does do extra wear, on the comm, and it wears off so quickly, why not save some motor life, and work your way from the start, i didn't notice a huge improvment, espically doing ifmar starts. hehe, i only used it in the mains too.

i think some drivers use black death drops like a standard comm drops.....

but the black death works as a booster and of course if you put too much opil on the comm the motor will burn....

using a standard comm drops (2 drops/run) will improve the performance and runtime and also helps the low wear...

Oval guys swear by Zubaks... but I run touring car and I never found ANY comm dropps that worked, on the dyno or on the track... just a waste of money IMHO

Only drops I've found to work are Tribo (after break in), and Hurricane Blue Thunder (for break in). But NOT mixing the two. If i plan to use tribo, i break in dry.

Thumbs up Comm Drops

I am partial but give Slick/Zero Comm Drops a try. They are 5.95 and only .95 shipping. They were used in the Florida off road state series on cars that won 3 different classes. To order www.slickzero.com
