Questions?? Paragon Additive Questions

Which of the Paragon additives are odorless and which have that wintergreen smell/content?

FXII
Ground Effect
Traction Action Etc.
Are there any others?

Just thinking about trying some different additives but we aren't allowed to use anything with wintergreen

Thanks
Skiddins

Ground Effects in the black can is the wintergreen.

None of them are odorless, they all have some smell but none of the others have wintergreen.

Ground Effects is the one you want to stay away from then. FX11 is a little more aggressive than the GE... bummer you can't use it.

Cheers Guys.

The smell of Banana's I can cope with

The novelty of the smell of Wintergreen would soon wear off (we used to use something similar on foams years ago called Tractite), I still have several tools that smell of despite even now! I actually don't mind the smell but I'm sure in an enclosed space particularly indoors it would make me nauseous

GFX2 smells like buggy grip, and TA smells like mineral spirits to me.

LOL!

Alot of R/C orderless tire additives are made out of white gas (Colmen fuel), mineral spirits and denature alcohol.

I always thought FXII smelled like maraschino cherries in lacquer thinner. Yummy
