Default Rubber Tire Traction Formulas

Anybody have any suggestions?
I'm looking for a good rubber tire additive to use now that Trinity have discontinued Tyre Tamer.

Anybody heard of or used Trinity Tire Tweak 2000?

Thanks for any info

Trinity's "David Spashett's Tangerine Tyre Tack" and Trinity's "Red Dot" both work well for me on asphalt with rubber tires.

For several time, I used Trinity's Red Dot and Tyre Tweak and the two are quite different.

For tyre priming I use Red Dot on rubber, and then if I have time and the tyre is old I apply Tyre Tweak to rejuventate the rubber.

On my foam tyres I use the same treatment: Red Dot, let dry slightly and apply Tyre tweak overnight to use at the next day.

If you're on hurry, use only red dot.

just a question:

will these tire traction juice damaged the tires faster??

i use the Cleaner spray ppl use to clean their engine on my tires during race. it really clean the tires deep clean. got traction later but not sure as to the perforamance when compared to the traction juice.

some racers that i spoke too say the traction juice only help a bit in the traction. what's more important is the choice of tires to the ground u are playing.

correct me if i am wrong.
