We use mountain dew syrup, methanol alcohol, and castor oil. I guess if it can make a 1/8 car traction roll, it is sticky.

Default Grape soda

I have been struggling for weeks to find grip on our sealed parking lot track. I bought an $8.00 chemical sprayer and some 2 liter grape soda's 2 for $1.00.
Sprayed it down and it was like a permanent circuit. Works very good.

Always use a blower beforehand. That will remove all the sand. Then spray traction compound.

I heard you can also do vht , then top it with grape soda for good results. BTW I think VHT smells great. But then again I was going to drag strips from age 16 on. So I think of racing when I smell this stuff.

Even better than blowing before is to hose it down with water. I guess that's obvious, but people sometimes don't bother.
