I tried it today. It is definitely not odorless. It does have an odor (Jack does too but less than this stuff). Not a real strong odor but an odor. Its seemed a bit thinner than Jack. It didn't seem to have quite the traction of Jack IMO. But it was on tires that had already had Jack on it and a track that has only used Jack.

Nice! I always keep jack on hand for steak, burgers and kabobs. Brings out the flavor!

Well I used Jack in the main. So I guess the secret is to use Stick Fingers the last two qualifiers then go back to Jack. Well and hope for Junior to wreck and lose his wing. But we will keep that secret amongst ourselves. ha ha...

btw, Doug gave it to me to test. Its not an official allowed compound at the track and it seems like it might not be. So far all the people who have tried it said they didn't like it as well as Jack.

Disappointing, with Corally having their way with the market, and their exorbitant pricing for Jack, I had hoped an equal or better solution would become available. $10 bucks for a micro can of compound is nothing short of sodomy IMHO. Of course Jack is inferior to Paragon, and everyone decided to force the switch to Jack due to smell, perhaps we take the hit a bit performance wise and all switch over to Sticky for the sake of economy.

After more testing I'm liking the SF less. Several at the track this weekend ran only SF and overall traction for the day was less overall.

From an economic standpoint I understand it. If everyone runs the same stuff then its fair for everyone. Butters brought up a good point though. We all know what Jack does (or doesnt do) to the carpet. Im not sure anyone knows the long term effects of SF on carpet yet.

is that what it is? coleman lantern fuel?
ran at a jack-only track last week and I about killed myself turn marshalling.
looking later, I could have sworn there was an oily-sheen to the ozite.
