I am curious if anyone is using spray glue on their club track. If so, what formulation do you use?

I would recommend the dotting in the brake zones for faster car racing.(wings/GTP)

 

"Normal" spray glue is probably better for slower cars/ones with less downforce.

 

Popular mixes are;

16 oz. Naptha with 1 bottle Camen Brown or Koford M319 Heavy.

8 oz. Naptha with 1 bottle  Champion Tire Bit Lite  Koford M384 Light.

 

What I'm liking these days is;

12 oz. Naptha with 1 bottle Koford M320 Medium.

 

It always pays to be conservative and add/touch up as needed.

8 oz. Naptha with 1 bottle Koford M384 Light.

12 oz. Naptha with 1 bottle Koford M320 Medium.

When someone says to spray the turns lightly and hit the breaking zones with a second coat it is hard to imagine how much actual spray should be put down on the track surface.

Assuming one was gluing a freshly cleaned Blue King how much of the above mixes would be used to treat the freshly cleaned track.  Racing would be for Wing Flexi with Proslot 16D or Group F using the Hawk 6 or GTP Flexi with Hawk 7.

 

I assume that the bank would not receive any spray glue, just the deadman, finger, 90, donut and lead on.

 

Thanks

Hi all

I like the med Koford & nafta mix.

I spray till the corner looks wet.......the nafta dry's leaving the glue.....

For home indoor track use with confined space, dotting the brake corners with Koford lite glue is the way to go.  Otherwise, you get overwhelmed with the spray glue fumes.  Good ventilation to the outdoors helps as well.

What's kind of weird is naptha seems to vary around here.

The stuff I've gotten lately seems to evaporate faster, smell less, and somehow leaves better results.

That's not real easy to predict.

It depends on how aggressively you clean the track.

I usually clean the King myself, using as little naptha as somewhat practical,and one micro-fiber rag, so it's still a little tacky, especially the turns done near the end (which includes the big Bank)

Still, I usually lightly dust the Bank.

I'd guess I use about 75% of 2 parts of the Medium mix, or 20-22 oz.

Thanks Mike.  Dusting the bank might help with the rear end sliding downhill during track calls.

Yes, it does.

If I have it right at the minimum of bite to keep downforce cars going thru there without kicking out at all, until the track gets rubbered up a bit, they still do slide down.

It really freaks out my birthday party kids. "My car is out of the slot". Lol
