softens and increases the natural adhesion of foam touring tires...

just clean them with "goop" hand cleaner, slather on a good amount, (the stuff - lotion and pumice) let it sit for a bit, then wipe it off and your tires should be nice and clean [8D]

i just bought a pair of foams to go run carpet off road. i was kinda bummed
theyre the losi ones.
i thought they were going to hook up awesome on ozite 2 i got to the track
and i had absolutely almost not traction. i ended up running steps in the back
and trying them in the front it pushed so crazy
i dialed in some positive camber and it was better but still
anyone know how to get these bad boys to hook up
im about to just run losi streets.
