Prestone Insta Trak = better starts?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever hear of the stuff?

I got it years ago for my wife. She had a CRX SI and it was terrible in the snow.

It comes in a spray can and you spray it on the tires if you get stuck. With the chemicals in it it softens the tread compond (I guess) to give you 3 times the amount of traction and yes, it does work! Maybe it's just super tackie and doesn't soften at all? Been years since I used it and don't remember.

I got to thinking this might be good for starts!

Comes out a dark brown color and is quite messy & smells really odd too.

Probably illeagal in AMA pro racing but locally, Hmmm. I thought about a square of rubber that would lay down like a welcome mat that would grip the ground on one side (much more surface area that a tire) and be ribbed to match the knobbies on the upper side would work too. Not as stealth as a spray. I guess like the hole shot devices, everyone would start using the spray or traction pad and negate any advantage so why start. Sort of why certain technologies are limited in NASCAR.
