Did a better job glueing the side wall all the way to the edge on the front tires. Preventing the car from over flicking on tight corners and consequently traction rolling. After that I was able to drive it harder.

Good job Izzy!
Thanks for the video
You got me from the git go man, I tried so hard to catch you guys, obviously too hard LOL, sorry for the bumping and over driving but that was a super fun race.
Look forward to doing it again soon.

You bailed too early man. We missed you at the podium. Got your tool stand printed. See you next time.

Under TCS rules, is traction compound allowed and, if so, what is the best one to use on low grip asphalt when the ambient temperature is around 75 F?

Tire conditioners are allowed, but may be restricted at certain TCS venues. (Some TCS host sites do not allow additives due to ventilation issues)
As for which one... Your best case is to ask people at the track if possible. There might be a goto for that particular track or a restriction.

Nothing in the TCS rules regarding traction compound. It's left up to the track. Some tracks has strict rules on which ones are allowed. If you're racing outside, I'm guessing it's open. But you should check with the track.

Direct from the TCS rules (see #1):
TIRE & WHEEL RULES
  1. Tire conditioners are allowed, but may be restricted at certain TCS venues. (Some TCS host sites do not allow additives due to ventilation issues)
  2. Tires may not enter the TECH inspection area in a wet condition.
  3. Tire warmers are not allowed in the tech inspection area. They may be used after the car has passed technical inspection.
  4. It is not permitted to drill extra wheel vent holes for the purpose of altering the performance and grip level of the tire. Enlarging the existing vent hole is also prohibited. Exception: In the F-1 rubber class, when using items 1031 and 1032 (high grip rubber tires) on Tamiya wheels that don’t have any holes (e.g. Tamiya foam wheels), it is permitted to drill one hole. Note: The hole may not exceed 2mm in diameter.
  5. Any tire insert may be used in classes that have OPEN Tamiya tire rules.
  6. “Spec” pre-mounted rubber tire classes may not remove the installed insert.
  7. It’s prohibited to apply super glue on the horizontal surface of the tire to alter traction characteristics. Exception: In the Euro Truck class you are permitted to glue up to the first horizontal groove/tread of the tire from the outside edge.
  8. Running rubber tires with no inserts is permitted and legal in the open tire classes.
  9. Asphalt Surface Races: GT-2 & GT-1 classes: House Spec Tire Rules. See Matrix Below for Specific Location House Tires used.
  10. Carpet Surfaces Races: GT-2 & GT-1 classes: See Matrix Below for Specific Location House Tires used.
  11. M-Chassis, Euro Truck, GT Novice, and GT Pro Spec must use the specified Tamiya branded tires called out in the class specific rules. See class specific rules.
  12. F-1 class: This class may use the host site “HOUSE” tire of choice.

What batteries seem to be the best batteries for Euro Truck?
