Default Traction Compound

Help anyone!
My club has just finished putting down new asphalt on the track. and unfortunately theres no chance on importing vft compount so Im in need of a traction compound that will at least give decent grip using everyday solutions. any formula will be appreciated. heard old fuel is very good but here a gallon of 30 nitro even old is about 45 dollars. , so is coke or raw honey mixed with water and brown sugar. help!
Desperado

Some places that I know of, spray down grape soda on the asphalt. Other places use sugar water. I gues just regular coke will do fine but the cheap no frills soda would be cheaper. Coke tastes too good to waste!

generic grape juice works great and is used on many tracks
just need to watch for ants

ah, in that case Ill try big cola, which is a coke like but at half the price. how long before the race begins should I apply it to the track?, I know that it evaporates quickly and that rain will wash it completely.

get one of those spray pump cans that pressurize with a handle. Almost like a bug spray type applicator.
