If you're into racing you'll know exactly how important tyres are. They're what turns engine power into forward motion and let you steer the car, which means they need to have an excellent grip on the track surface. The best grip comes from soft tyre rubber that moulds itself to the texture of the track and gets the maximum contact area, but racing is hard work and tyres don't stay soft for long. They're expensive to replace, too, so it would be great if there was a way to extend their working life.
Well, now there is. Octopus Grip is an Australian product designed to give you the ultimate grip and keep your tyres in good order for much longer. It's a surface treatment that soaks into the outer layers of the rubber and softens it without weakening the tyre. The result is you'll get better times and better overall performance. It's an easy way to get the best grip in hot or cold weather. It's dead easy to use as well. All you have to do is clean the tyre and make sure the surface is scuffed – that helps the Octopus Grip penetrate – then, a few days before your race, get a clean paint brush and paint the tyre with the liquid. Then wrap the tyre in heavy duty plastic sheet until race day and you're all set. If you want to bring life back to older tyres you might need multiple coats to get the optimum effect, but once you've done that you'll have brought back the original softness and saved yourself from having to replace them just yet. That's what we like to see – something that doesn't just improve performance, but reduces costs too.
Octopus Grip is ideal for all motorsports; it's earned fans in drag racing, street sprints, speed circuits and hillclimb events. Whatever kind of racing you're into it's a great way to give yourself an edge and save some cash at the same time.
