Paragon Fx2

  • I have not found a forum which directly deals with Paragon Fx2. I hope this will help some of the people who want to use / have used this or other tyre treatments.

    Fx2, Tyre Tweak, Jach the Gripper or even Simple Green comments are welcome here.

  • FX2 works pretty well with rubber tires on asphalt. But I hate the smell... I also find that the tires wear a little faster with FX2. I don't have this issue with Tire Tweak though.
  • Testing
    I have been doing some serious testing over the last few weeks. I have tested warmers, 'no additives', Simple Green (SG), other house cleaners, Paragon Fx2 (Fx2), and Tyre Tweak (TT).

    I did all of my testing in good conditions on two medium/high grip tracks in which I am very familiar so the consistancy of my laps would be good. All runs were 10 laps long, starting from a #1 grid position behind the S/F line and 60degC on the warmers when used.

    I have now tested the following combinations during warm days on Sorex36 tyres:

    Nothing - took about 4 laps before my times settled down. 3/10
    Nothing/warmers - 3-4 laps. 5/10
    SG - 2 laps. 6/10
    SG/warmers - 1-2 laps. 7/10
    Windex/warmers - 4 laps. 6/10
    Orangepower general use cleaner - 3 laps. 7/10
    TT/warmers - 1 lap. 7/10 (with increased tyre wear)
    Fx2/warmers - instantly. 8/10 (with increased tyre wear)
    SG/Fx2/warmers - instantly. 9/10 (with increased tyre wear)
    TT/Fx2/warmers - instantly. 9/10 (with increased tyre wear)

    I have tested all of the same during the cooler night temperatures and the results only change very slightly. The only difference is that I turn the warmers up by 10degC during night.

    I have found that Fx2 is the best in both conditions but once the hotter days of Summer get here (30+degC / 90+degF) I will be just sticking to SG/warmers.

    Try:
    SG(cleaner)/Fx2 (10min on warmers)/TT(5min on warmers) = fast early lap times.
