Check out VP's website and check it out Sean.
Excellent. I've heard nothing but good about that stuff.

Also, if the track is sprayed for practice, that makes me quite happy to pay that fee. I know what that stuff costs

Track will be sprayed and prep for practice...that is why track owner charges a fee...the stuff is pretty pricey.

Weather tends to be mild in late September so grip going to be pretty high.

The track owner will moniter the track condition and spray as needed...you can go to far with this stuff and you end with insane "video game" grip.

I have two sets just for such conditions. Been sitting in the car baking for over five years now

Check out VP's website and check it out Sean.
Lane Choice 6™ Track Adhesive
Recommended for use when track temperatures are 90º or greater, LC6™ is the best extreme temperature compound available. It provides the same superior performance in all respects as LC7, but is specifically formulated for extreme high temperatures. Methanol soluble

In September is the track going to be warmer than 90 degrees?

If it's sunny, yes. Even if only 65 air temp, track temp will be at least 90. 65 and cloudy, you might only see 80 track temps.

We have been using this specific traction additive for years in many different weather conditions and it is superior over anything else.
FYI, late Sept. still see mid 80's temp wise. Track asphalt will still have plenty of heat in it.

Told you they would sauce the track. There's no shortage of "grip" at the track. If you get there and think you need to add compound, you have other issues going on with your car.

Hi Guys,

What shore tires should I bring for Sedan and 8th scale?

Based on what you are saying about the level of traction should I bring harder tires?

Just wondering. Thanks.
