Sun block works great on foam's for outdoor asphalt and for indoor paragon. For rubber I have been using tq blue or jack the gripper but I have been getting the best performance from mph products tire compound it is basically very light bearing oil you only need a little bit and rub it in with your finger and traction up the a$$ and it is great in bearings and it comes in a very small bottle because you don't need very much. O and the best part about it is their is no smell at all

hey guys thanx for your feedbak and lets hope it keeps coming as i think traction compounds and formula's are vital for rc racing to be competitive.
to kingzj, what do you use bearing oil on foam or rubber ???
oh and by the way i have tried RP7 on foams which is pretty much the same as WD40 and it seems to work great . i havent actually run with it yet but i will be on friday night so i will give you some feedback
keep the formula's coming guys

I am not joking. Laquer Thinner on rubber tires. Alot of compounds are solvent based. Using this reallly cleans the tire. Put it on and wipe it off with a rag, and stickie tires!!!. I use it on my off road tires too. I just apply it like Buggy grip....with a toothbrush. It softens up the rubber a little too.

I haven't seen Racer's Choice products mentioned - for rubber tires, TQ Blu, TQ and TQ Mod for 1/10 Oval and Sedan foam, TQ 8 for 1/12 scale. Minimal odor - citrus based compounds.

I'll be moving back to your area in early 2003.

TQ stuff are absolutely crap in comparison to Paragon, at least in my application of 1/12th carpet. They are only good for killing weeds.

hey guys ,
thanx for all your help and lets keep the formula's coming .
i found a really good rubber traction formula recently .
simply apply selley's RP7 to your tyres and let it dry about 5-10 mins before a race and you have great traction . believe me it works.

I know that the Orion Traction compound for foams tells you it is a formula for foams but not sure about the rest of their line...

Litespeed - I agree Paragon works better - but all the (indoor) tracks I have raced at have banned the stuff in the last two years or so - and I don't come home with a buzz anymore.

I soaked an old set of Gandini Fast tires (35 shore) that had poor grip in WD40. I left them for a couple of hours and when I came back they were super sticky. I had a go on the wooden floor of my shed with them on my XXX-S and they had loads of grip, it was nearly impossible to spin out. All my other tires just spin all the time.
I'm gonna try it at the track tomorrow, if it isn't raining.
