Default Paragon Ground Effects Tire Sauce Woes

Woe is me - I am torn between the Ground Effects geenie and the bottle - I love this magic tire sauce, but i hate the bottle it comes in - it takes super human strength to first open it, and when you do...i eventually end up spilling about half of it out as i knock it over in my pit area or bag.

A couple of guys around my track have an old school 4oz Ground Effects can with a dobber built in the lid (which they do not make the ground effects in the 4oz anymore) - i love it b/c you have to hit it pretty hard for it to spill...with the rectangular metal bottle they give us - you are just asking to spill it.

So, has anyone come up with a solution for this problem...i am thinking about buying a different kind of tire sauce, just for the can - and just use that, b/c i love the Ground Effects.

Trinity sells all their sauces in a Bingo Marker style bottle with a VERY secure lid. It'll still spill if you knock it over when it's open, but the plastic bottle doesn't require super-human strenth to open or close so you could just close it after application. Buy some Zip Grip, pop off the little bingo marker applicator and use the bottle. Just keep your dauber in a small zip lock bag.

Hope this helps.

You need two things, a razor blade and a pair of pliers (preferably Channel locks, but regular ones will do)

1. Use razor to cut off retarded child proof plastic cover from screw top.

2. Use pliers to open can (lefty loosey). It won't take as much force with pliers, and in the abscence of the plastic cover.

I use a container that is used for leak detector, commonly called "snoop", it's used for checking leaks in things such as gas lines. If you can get one of these they work great. comrs with the dobber too.
