The only one I've ever used was 'Jack The Gripper'. I solely run Sorex 28's and 32's btw. Never needed to try a different traction compound as I was quite happy with this stuff. Very low odor too.

Outdoors on asphalt:
New tires. Clean with buggy grip2 and run.

Older tires. Clean with buggy grip 2. Then apply a thin layer of of Tire Tweak2000 (or LG2) and rub into the tires with a lint free rag. Allow to sit until tacky or cook it in with tire warmers.

Indoors on carpet: just run what everyone else uses (usually jack the gripper, sticky fingers, SXT3.0 or niftech). If you are at a track where everyone uses paragon, use paragon. Don't use something that no one else uses. Traction is highest when everyone uses the same thing.
