Default SXT Tire additive????

i've been using Paragon FX2 on rubber tires with some success, but it seems to be a little loose in the heat. I've heard Tire tweak is good, but takes to long to soak. I've heard a little about SXT, but it doesn't seem to be main stream. Is it worth it and where can I get some to try?

hey sliprip.....

Currently you can mail order the compound from Superior Hobbies (407.834.9299) or from PDUBracing.com.

The traction compound is pretty easy to work with. Simply clean off your tires with motor spray or another cleaner. Then apply SXT when you start charging the battery. We recommend a second application unless it is extreme heat. One application should be fine in hot temps.

It is Odorless.........

you don't have to wipe it off (if you put it on when recommended).......

keeps consistent traction throughout the run (unless you like to burn up your tires and get them hot and greasy)

Not a problem P-DUB.
