12th stock on ozite - I've been running niftech for a few months. It takes one run for them to rub in and start working well; but after that they are hooked-up for the rest of the day. Plus niftech doesn't stink as much as paragon.

For rubber tire, I use tire tweak after cleaning w/ motor spray or buggy grip. Let it sit for 30+ minutes then wipe it off. For foam tire I use Foam Factor from ARC. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before your run, and then wipe it off just before you go up for your heat. The stuff has crazy traction. I usually have to clean the tires every run or two though (usually with motor spray), because the tires get gummy.

Only use TC-3 and works great on rubber and also gives you a high feeling .

Not only what tire sauce you use, but how it is used. You can ask 10 people how they apply Paragon, and you'll get 10 different methods, and even more with different tires. Sorex is great with Paragon, but doesn't really work well with Takeoffs ( I use Simple Green on those). On Sorex's, I sauce at least 4 heats in advance, then if there's some that didn't soak in, I'd wipe them or use tire warmers and bake it in. It also depends on the track.

I do the following:

1) Apply traction compound and let dry for 10 mins
2) Use tires warmers to for 10 mins
3) Apply traction compound again while tires are warm and let dry for another 10 mins
4) Use tires warmer again until my race starts.

I think you need something with a harder front & side bite. Hopefully we won't be in the same heat so I can pit for you and will apply CA glue on your rubbers before I put your car on the starting grid.

Not a fan of using an oil to clean tyres. To me, rubber and oil don't mix, so WD-40 is not so good in my opinion. I've heard of Simple Green working well for cleaning tyres, then applying the additive and baking it into the tyre, with some sort of absorbent material such as an old T-shirt strip or paper towel to absorb most of the excess GOOP!

I'm no expert though, as in my experience the additive hasn't made nearly as much difference as the cleaning has. The other rule to follow, is that the additive is only going to work well IF you have clean tyres. If they are dirty, then the additive will not work properly.
