Use a circular motion over and over
Keep going till the tires just feel sticky rather than wet

Rubbing the adative in really helped my tires hold traction for a whole 5 min race. It's better when the towel is a bit adative soaked so you rub it in more than just soaking the adative off.

The Silverstar tires were much softer than anything else I ever saw. I think just about every one was using them on the rear.

When the tires are more than half worn they will not work very well.
mmm silverstar soaked 1 hour with traction additive.... can you spell TIRE WEAR????
With todays power, those tires will wear more than 2mm per run!!!

To be honest, the silverstar tires are fast, but I never liked em because the bizar wear.
From corally I prefer the Goldstar medium rears and green rears.
