Default Nosram/LRP Tire Additive

Where can I get this tire additive in the States???

I can't find it being sold at anywhere outside of the UK. Is there a better additive than LRP/Nosram??

This is for indoor carpet with rubber.

Thanks.

to be honest, the LRP/Nosram additive only really works when the carpet is quite fresh.

As soon as grime starts getting laid down, others are far more effective.

I've learnt that you need to be on the additive that everyone else is using. If everyones using Jack the Gripper, your wasting your time trying anything else.

When it gets a little more complicated is when there are mulitple additives being laid down at the same event, in this case CS works the best here in the UK, but i've heard Paragon cant be beaten in the states.

LRP/Nosram additive is the best on asphalt for both rubber and foam that I've tried and everyone here uses it. However, on carpet I find CS gripper to be much better since it's consistant from the first to the last lap, which isn't the case with the LRP. Dont get me wrong, the LRP is still very good (good enough for me not to buy CS additive ) so I use it also on carpet. BTW I drive 1:18 on carpet

Thanks for the response guys,

Which Paragon are you talking about Mb3195?? Ground effects or FXII?? Is one better over the other in carpet/asphalt conditions??

I haven't heard of CS Grip, can that be purchased over here in the States??

CS is a small German manufacter that makes this additive which is the additive of choice for most of the ETS competitors. You shoudn't bother with it though, since you're from the US You have plenty of great additives that we Europeans have never heard of, and vice versa
