I will go out and give the goat some Bud Light and be ready with a jar if it gives good traction!

Derek, if you leave it out near your pits or set it up with Bucky, that would be great. I have a b-day thing that I might do instead. I don't know yet. Sunday, I ran 3 times and the last time, the car ran for 5:45 and just twisted off the track. I have been very frustrated. So much so, I bolted the engine back into the 8th scale car... wondering where I could go to race.

Been using Niftech for a couple weeks and I have to say that there is less fade later in the race due to the traction compound not wearing off the tires. With Niftech (over JTG) the tires almost still feel "moist" at the end of a race. I love the cotton applicator over the brush that comes in JTG - easier to apply the compound onto the tires as well.

Anyone know a hobby shop in the US (preferably on the east coast) that carries Niftech compound in stock and will ship?

I run both Niftech and Paragon (Ground Effects, not Traction Action), and they both work great. I think Paragon works better until the grip comes up really really high. Then I'll run Niftech to free up the car a bit. Running Niftech on a track with a PGE black groove works super. Just have to hope the start of your race doesn't get delayed a few minutes, or your tires will be too dry to hook up right away.
