Default Sticky Tire Additive? HELP!

Hi,

I am looking to make my some tire sauce for myself, but am stuck on what exactly will make the sauce stickier? I have looking to make myself a super sticky tire sauce.

Does anybody have any ingredients that would mix together to give me the stickiness? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you're trying to find a rubber softening compound, right? From your post it sounded like you are trying to make honey.

Google has some good info on how to soften rubber.

I do not want to exactly soften the tire. I want to make the tire "stickier" like honey, you could say.

Track down some traction compound that Slot-Car racers use.
