I think it sucks. I don't think there really is a time feasible cost effective way of banning it. So having said that we are left with one option.
At the state race last weekend I hit the track with super sauce on the tyres, only to find out that it's that wonderful time of year in Florida when there is pollen everywhere! You will find your car covered in gold powder. Sauce helped the pollen ball up so your car became very inconsistent, lord help ya if you got off line. Sauce, no sauce whatever...when in Rome

The two that I have seen are LG2 and Paragon. But I am sure there are others. Some are doing it and some are not. It has become more of a thing to joke about... while you are adding it to your tires. I used it during the state race last weekend. Have not used it so far this week and I am faster. Traction is high so there is less need for sauce. :08 seconds faster. Of course the next person to post might have a different opinion.

Earlier in the week people were trying it, but the traction at Ft Myers is SOOO high right now sauce makes the car undriveable. Although no one is having the same hangup about that Stefan is, and yes it is being used openly.
But like Tony just wrote, it actually slows you down now.

normally if the tire prep is to a point of slowing u down its time to throw on harder tires and prep with something less aggressive but im no pro on the RC side of preps and foam tires.

I think So Much Sauce was used this week, The entire track has a layer of sauced foam layed down, You can tell the ones who continue to sauce, The car slips and slides the first lap or 2, or they really baby it around for a lap to run the tires in, Unlike a normal warm up lap. I gotta say, I did like the Capricorn tire Saucer machine I seen. ( trick ) .
