Does all these traction compound prolong the run time apart from increasing the traction?

It really depends. I've tested SXT 1.0 on up to 10 run tires for modified. The last run was as fast as the first few runs.

I think the key to any sauce and helping used tires is baking something back into them.

Has anyone tried the old trick of putting the compound on the tires, then a paper towel over it, and then the tire warmer over it with SXT. I know it works with paragon but I am curious to see how it works with SXT.

I know some guys that have had success in baking in SXT 1.0 (original). I am not sure if they used paper towels however. I believe they applied a second layer as well after about 15 minutes.

Yes, Trinity's Red Dot is pretty much the same as Paragon's Ground Effects, though i think Red Dot has even more of the smelly stuff in it(tried some years ago, stuff was noxious, & I was even told the best thing to do was to mix it with Paragon or another weaker one so it'd decrease the chance the stuff would eat the glue on your tires)....

Is Death Grip Traction (Foam or Rubber) the so called Tyre Tweak? Cause I can't find it on trinity site. I can find tyre tweak for foam though, but dont want that one, I need the one for asphalt.

It's true! We used to used on 1/8 nitro in the 80's and Delta also use it as an emergency shock oil.

Tire Tweak is not the same as Death Grip.
Tweak is more of a conditioner you put on after some other tire dope to make the tire dope last longer.

The consistency of it reminds me of honey, you put it on (I use an old oil bottle) then you have to rub it in with your fingers. Its not like most traction compounds where you just use the dobber.

Red Dot is pretty potent smelling. Its not Wintergreen like Paragon, but more of just a strong chemical smell.

Great Planes/Tower Hobbies has Trinity Tire Tweak and Red Dot in stock all the time. My LHS has been getting in steady weakly shipments of both for many months.
