the biggest thing to inside carpet racing is alot of tracks have gone to an odorless traction compound. these compounds your putting together can they be odorless?

I think there is a market, you would definitely need to make the stuff odorless, easy to use, and you would need either one formula that worked on both carpet and asphalt OR separate formulas.

Not only odorless, but compatible with the current standards: SXT/Jack the Gripper/Sticky Fingers.

Some of the additives I tested would probably classify as "odorless", others smell like a paint factory.

Skiddins- As I understand it, the "tire wash" is to remove the treatment from the tire, without drying it out, probably between events. I haven't tried it, just used the clear stuff [HT Series 1] to clean tires, gets rubber build-up off the tread quick, fast, and in a hurry!


I'm interested to see how these preps work on asphalt as well.

Also, I think I need to correct an earlier statement: New scuffed tires are still faster than used tires, but the additives we tried on used tires dropped about .2/lap compared to the regular additive we had been using. As pleased as I've been with the sauces I've tried, it's not magic, but it has helped to get a few more competitive runs out of a set of tires.

So which one would you recommend I order to try on asphalt? Talking FTS here.

And this one you already tried?

Yes, I've tried Hot Lap LMT, works pretty well, tires came in fast, with good grip and lower tire temps.

For FTS preps, I'm very confident the Clear [HT Series 1] will work well as a cleaner and light prep.

For more grip, I would have to experiment between Light Blue [HT Series 2] by itself and the Red [Slight Bite], cleaning with one of the HT Series preps, and using the Red over top after drying.

The Black [Black bite], took a long time for the tires to "come in" on carpet, but this is the sauce I'm most interested to try on asphalt, again, cleaning with either clear or light blue.
