Anybody have good luck with this at the track with street tires? I was thinking it might help bring my 60' times down a bit. I know slicks are best but I don't want to spend the dough for them yet.

Putting that stuff on your tires will not be a remote equal to slicks. I tried that stuff before on street tires and it made a very marginal difference, if at all. Street tires are generally just too hard.

Don't... all it did for me was coat my freshly rebuilt Koni's so everything stuck to them during the burnout... and I used it on slicks!!!

actually I used it wednesday at the track. My first run I didn't at all and traction was non existant. So for the next run I sprayed the tires down twice letting them dry inbetween coats. Then I did a small burn out before I staged. When I launched the tires spun in first but I quickly shifted to 2nd and they hooked really good. SO good in fact that my clutch couldn't hold and started slipping really badly . From that experience I might use it again but I will probably just step up to slicks and see what happens. Your right about it being expensive, I pain $35 for a gallon at the local speed shop! But I figured if it helped cut back my times it was worth it. Plus the gallon should last me quite a while, hopfully all season.

The stuff works great when your are racing on the street with slicks.

Do a burnout........then pour a small amount in front of the drive tires.Pull forward onto the puddles and spin the tires a couple of revolutions.Then pull forward to the man lining up the cars ;)

Those were the days! :)
