Default Whats your favorite Traction Compound??

I'm curious to know from anyone here to get a consensuses of what others use for traction compound for foam tires. I personally use Paragon ground effects. But I know the Paragon offers the traction Action and FXII and then there's the Corally with 3 more formulas to choose from. I would appreciate your response. Reply in this post what you use.

Trinity Death Grip Foam (not the rubber version) works well on nitro foams on asphalt.

Sometimes I use some goop a mate of mine has, its incredible stuff. Makes the rubber sticky to touch, and you dont need to wipe it off.

Its some custom batch he had made up or something.

Otherwise I run trinity reddot and paragon fx2.

Default TQ seems to work

You would think that you would already know the answer. You have run on both carpet and a gym floor, and have run dirt. You are looking for an answer so that you know what to have others run on a new track without damaging it. Almost any of the non wintergreen compounds will work and you will not have the lingering odor that affects a lot of people. Keep it simple and limit it to just one or two and keep a good amount on hand for those that have something different. As far as homebrew, I would stay away from it. My last suggestion would be to talk to Frank at CRC where your carpet came from. Need any other help?
