Yes I very often run WD , it's great Also from my experiences it has better grip at colder weather than LRP additives . On warmer conditions pro aditives are surely better but not by much , still makes the WD an economic option


BCbud , really great to see you running this car at big meetings I have only white and yellow shocks , always used all 4 white ones . Do you reccomend using yellow ones at the back ? Also , how many holes in shocks ? I'm running 13T brushless class and tracks we run on are technical with medium grip ...

Yep, it does sound like a good budget option... can you talk about the application period and methods? like how long before use and what are the long term effects? I am always looking for alternatives to importing stuff to the island...

The best way in my opinion is to give the tyres WD , then wrap them in plastic foil ( I don't know the right word , the one you use in the kitchen for food preservation ) and leave them overnight . Next day at the track , the tyres are extremely sticky and ready to use . If WD is applied before racing , same rules as for pro aditives : after applying it , leave it for a few minutes to dry and its ready

Are there any negative effects using this technique on the tyres?
