Should clarify that in your post, people can assume many things when you're that vague. As for additives, there are a few that I know of off the top of my head:

Xylene
Zip grip (lol)
WD40
Simple green

I've actually never put any of that stuff on my rigs, but I do know that there are different alternatives based on track, traction and weather. Good luck.

It is rare, but there are some tracks, or events, that do not allow tire sauce. Some do it to eliminate the health risk to the racers due to possible dangerous chemicals in the sauce. Some do it to keep the dirt from getting chemicals that they do not want in it, and some events do it to ensure the playing field is leveled. Maybe other reasons...

However, usually, as mentioned, there are no restrictions.
