Default offroad tire traction compound

just wandering if there's such a thing for offroad tire traction compound? i think using it would make the dirt stuck to the tire, but maybe using it for storage?

People use some of the trinity stuff for indoor clay, but outside dirt its horrible for. Makes the tire feel like a banana peel.

I don't know what it is called in english, but directly translated from danish, I use something called "belt spray". It is designed for the belts in a real car, and it softens up the rubber. On asphalt tracks (like Furulund in Sweden) it really helps a lot. Just spray it on, and let it sit for hour or so. If you need more traction, you can let it sit longer. I have tried leaving tires overnight, and it completely sticks to the table. Almost impossible to get it off the table

Pro1RC is working on a traction additive/tire softener.

Best stuff in the world. You can use WD40 but it will destroy the surface of the track so I highly recommend NOT using it.

Buggy Grip II works very well on tacky clay. Anything other than a tacky clay surface, you're not gonna get any benefit from traction compounds.

Any time you feel like you could benefit from a bit softer tire spray it. Or he has marinade for overnight which softens them more

+1, but honestly I would just buy a softer compound tire. I notice tire wear is better if you buy soft or super soft compound tires apposed to softening the tires with a chemical.

Although if you have a bunch of tires that are not soft enough then by all means have at it.
