I found MuchMore to make some very decent additives, but they are pretty expensive, as you don't get that much, and a bottle doesn't last that long. I used to use Jack The Gripper (which was pretty good with the Sorex tires), and a bottle of that almost lasted the entire winterseason. Now I bought some MuchMore at the same price as Jack The Gripper, and after only 4 trips to the track, I have used half of it.

For rubber on carpet I found Jack the Gripper works best. Probably Paragon next or Sticky Fingers.

If you can get Paragon Ground Effects then I highly recommend it, it always seems to grip when others wont, love that wintergreen fresh scent too.
If it smells burnt up.. it's more than likely hot.. you don't have to touch it..
