It's really up to what is accepted at your local track. It seems that (in the US) most carpet tracks have settled on one of the following:

1) Corally "Jack the Gripper"
2) Trinity "Sticky Fingers"
3) SXT 3.0
4) Niftech

Other tracks still allow Paragon Ground Effects, but most have banned it due to the overpowering Wintergreen smell that lingers seemingly forever.

Also, it's not a good idea to mix traction compound brands on the same carpet. Some are OK, others make traction inconsistent.
