Default vacuum pink arrows additive machine

I finally receieved a few for the shop and to tried one, they are a little over kill when you think about it, but once you have it and use it they are pretty trick, quick to use and works awesome. The machine allows the sauce to soak deeper than we can rub in by hands. I guess if they are starting to allow sauce tires you might has well get one, 2 - 5 tens a lap faster always helps. Everybody at the last major race is using additives why not jump on board, because when you have racers that in general never beating you and now they are passing you, that SUCKS, lol.

some asked if you make a large hand pump doesn't that work the same?


probablly, make one and see if it works the same or even if it soaks all the way to the wheel (DEEP) like the pink arrows. I dont know if the pressure that the machine puts out with a battery works better because of suction is harder. I never made one or tried saucing until today. I think the vacum machine works well with a battery sucking harder and yes it does weigh 10 lbs. Pink Arr ows put a lot of time designing this so I give them credit and it is nice. Maybe pink arrow will read this thread and jump on and talk with us about it.

I know absolutly nothing about any of the saucing yet or machines. I do know we have been selling alot of the capicorn machines and SRC is coming out with one also next week.. SRC LOOKS JUST LIKE THE CAPICORN MACHINE.

Nice tool, but I'll stick to massaging a few days ahead of a meet ..... If you can get 0.4seconds a lap faster with the massaging technique, how much more can you get with this machine ???? Can you really get any faster???? Do you really need the sauce soaking the foam that's close to the rim, possibly affecting the glue???? Massaging is not at a disadvantage as long as it reachs the usable foam(over 56mm), and not affect the bonding agent........

Last I had a talk with a fellow racer and publisher that it is funny to see that electric racing is treating tires with simple equipment like a brush and towel while with the legalizing of treatment with gas racing we do see many inventive machines hitting the market.
He (as a electric racer) finds it funny that a different scene can come up with this and the most funny thing to see is that a device like the one from Capricorn is now also used with electric racing.

It is only sad to see into the near future that every racer has such a device on his bench beside all other equipment. I do believe gas racing with the foam tires does not need grip creators, a lack of grip on the track is something that belongs to racing. Normally racing is all about getting grip with the best setup and controll over the car and not about who can create the best grip with tire additives.

Anyone have any idea what traction compounds are synthetic based and thus not useable with this machine (or the Xceed version)? It seems to me that if you put in the wrong traction compound then the entire cylinder is screwed...

I'm wondering just how deep the sauce is
getting ???... Aren't our tires closed cell foam??..
I suspect there is no more advantage to using this
than using a rotisserie style sauce machine...
