I dont know what i did wrong but the WD-40 failed me. I put it on before i went to the track, and when i got there. I had no traction. Turned out my tires had caked up real bad. i cleaned them and ended up spending $15 on the spot for jack the gripper.

Ive also read that the WD-40 was for cleaning, but prior, it was getting the job done.

Any ideas why i kept getting cake up?

You guys have to understand that for the average race tracks around getting the right additive combo is an art of work!! some additives are useless at some places and sensational at others. some work on dusty dirty tracks and some are tragic!!. Sometimes i go to a practice day and by the end of the day im a second a lap faster than when i got there and never changed my setup only additive.

It can also depend on what the additive is that most guys use at the track. If you're using Tire Tweak and the popular additive is Sweep X1 or X2, then you might run into some traction issues.

I wish it were truly that easy... Finding good grip on a variety of surfaces usually requires several different traction recipes. However, if I'm struggling for grip and running outdoors, I'll clean my tires with lighter fluid, and use a combination of Buggy Grip (apply and let dry) and Tire Tweak.
