Well they are both for asphalt rubber tire.

1.0 is odorless, self drying and works great for new and used tires.
2.0 is similar to "tweak".

I have tested both seperately and together with great results.

For carpet racing--

#1-- Paragon ground effects

#2-- paragon traction action- Which is there newest, it works almost as good as griund effects without the smell. You just need to leave it on the tires longer.

Niftech makes a nice odorless compound that works nicely on foams for carpet and rubber on asphalt.

I mix boiled cat urine with my own feces. But for traction compound, I use Paragon, or Trinity Red Dot. I don't think you can get Red Dot anymore. I think it killed some people.

Trinity Tire Tweak........ I also heard they might discontinue it. Not sure. SXT 2.0 works just as good.

Ok dumb question...which paragon is in the black can. Is that ground effects? I use that and have no problems. For rubber tires I use Trinity Red Dot or stick with the Paragon.

Towerhobbies usually carries Red Dot. Bought 3 bottles back in July.
Works great on foams for aspahlt racing.
You can still buy Trinity Tire Tweak also.
