Talking good rubber asphalt additive  

hello
I first ask forgiveness for my English is not very good and I am translating with google
I'm looking for a good additive for asphalt rubber wheels for 1/10 electric touring
I have tried various lrp and MR33 but has not finished quite like me
I'm lost and not to resort to
I have spoken of corally tc5 What do you think of it?
I have seen some web one called paragon FXII but I doubt if it is for rubber or foam
I do not want to spend unnecessary money, I've spent lrp and MR33 and did not like me

track as standard is now very little grip and less in winter

I would like you to give me your opinion thanks

MR33 should be quite good for you, how are you applying it? Are you using tyre warmers? How long is it on for? What temperature?

There are a lot of things you can try before giving up on the additives you have already.

if I have tire warmers

I will explain the method of employment

1 - clean with limpiafrenos
MR33 2-additive
3 - put paper and put heaters wheel about 15 minutes at 65 degrees Celsius

that's what I do
Is it okay if I do?

thank you very much in advance

I think the instructions on the new bottles say 60C for 35 minutes, so you could try warming for longer.
Also try to let the tyre cool to its own temperature for the start of the run, so if you're running a "32 tyre" try to have the tyres at 30-35C when the car sets off.

You could try cleaning with lighter fluid instead of brake cleaner and warm the tyres for longer if possible, 30 minutes or more

Some people will 'two stage' an additive, where they use the thicker additive, like MR33, then for the last five minutes they will add something thinner on top like Xenon 5000 or similar.

If you want to try different additives that are similar to MR33, there is also AME Asphalt or Spider Grip Orange.

The additive best suited to your track can vary depending on the tracks surface.

Hi,

I would bring this thread up?
Is there a new knowledge base or is MR33 still the best choice for outdoors?
