Check the $1 stores. Often you can find 3 liter bottles of off brand soda for $1. We buy ours by the 6 bottle case.

Gotta wonder if you're not putting the cart before the horse. Have you actually driven a car on this surface yet ??? Before you make what appears to be some work for yourself you might want to stick with the basics and run some cars around. Try just blowing it off first. That moves the dust but mostly any sticks, rocks, etc. the car might go over. The VTA tires actually do quite well on most asphalt and concrete surfaces. Our club ran on both so we've had some experience. Good Luck.

ill check to see if juicing the track is needed or juicing the tires works....really using it to get better on overall steering and control....

My advice is the clean the surface and run on it and have run.

Once you have a layout sorted and racing picks up you can then start with getting more traction.

My only advice with sugar water soda ect is to put a very light even covering as there is nothing worse than having different grip levels.

If it is humid it might also pay to spray the track the day before and don't add any during race day.

Yes.

I use pancake syrup from the dollar store and use 2 Table spoons of
Pinesol, to keep the ants and bugs away, mixed with water in a garden sprayer.
The syrup mixes well with the water and it's faster to use then sugar.

Cheers...
