Oh, I thought the secret sauce was VHT. At least that's what I was thinking.

With 1/5th cars we found the asphalt does have to reach a certain temp for the VHT to work. Unless it gets a chance to "bake in" as we called it, the VHT is nothing but a nasty mess. Ultimately our club opted to stop using the stuff.

Joey   secret sauce is a corn syrup base.. not good when it gets humidity or cold ... ends up gumming up your tires

VHT dont need sun to work..  soda does.  VHT works better when the ground is warm  at least 70 degrees.  of if really cold blast it with a flame torch   hot diggity!

Alcohol breaks down the VHT though. Yeah it might make it easier to spray but it won't be nearly as sticky.  Dilute with MEK  is the best   but throw the spryaer away afterwards unless it has teflon seals

vht Increases traction regardless of weather conditions, I LOVE the smell of VHT, race gas, heck even nitromethane... 

or you can use VP’s premier traction compound, LC7..  easier to spray and doesn't require heat on the surface and is ready in a few minutes.

I knew there was something I missed about racing closed-wheel cars. Having a door to aim for!

We should have a new class to race. "The 17.5 build the strongest 1/10 car and hack your way to the finish class". Hacking encouraged.

I'm not afraid to make the drive up there on the chance that we can race. I think it's going to be close, but I think we should give it a try!

Right now it's pretty much a run what you brung type or class with few limitations. Looking at the cars running last weekend, everyone was close and on the same pace. Definitely fun to watch and race. I make jokes about the class, but that's just me and everyone knows I'm joking (Like saying it makes calling a race easier as I have a hard time counting past turn 4).  As far as I see it, unless someone comes out and just dominates every weekend, then a rule will need to be put in place to keep the racing tight. But for right now, the class is growing, everyone up on the drivers stand is having FUN, and that's the point.

In my opinion for a class to grow, it has to be fun and the racing has to be tight. And since no one is just pulling away from the pack, and no one is griping, I would say it's fair.
