Blue Juice reduced lap times from 4.2 down to 3.7, but now they're down to 3.3 (75ft home Gerding) using Bach Tuning Slide Grease.  Part number on bottle is 2942BSG, very sticky stuff  


I guess there's an advantage to owning both a music store and a home track, it gives you crazy ideas that work!

"Grease" doesn't sound like something that would be good for a track.   Kinda like the Lubriplate we used to use back in the day.

This would be applied , then wiped off. Not like traction additives(glue) that stay on the tire and then tracked onto the track surface.

I just spread a thin bead around the center of the tread, then rub it in across the full width and go.  No wiping or waiting, and it doesn't take much.

Is it making the rubber sticky, softening the rubber, or super-cleaning the rubber?


Is it leaving any residue on the track?


If it is, be careful it's not softening the glue holding down the braid, like Zip Grip or Sticky Fingers will, if it gets on the braid.

Reminiscent of the debacle of a certain tire compound....kind of like being tough to run a lane after certain types of tires were used by the driver in that lane before you. I'm hopeful these "rubs" are merely helping the tire and not affecting the lane for the next driver.
