Using Octopus Grip Tyre Softener for best results ...
Octopus Grip was specially designed to reduce the ongoing running costs of
motorsports while improving racing performance.
Developed to Australian Standards Octopus Grip can help give you the edge in your sport...
Octopus Grip is simple and easy to use...
1. A few days prior to your race, ensure tyres are clean and scuffed.
2. Apply Octopus Grip with a clean paint brush. Apply gently to small sections of your tyre
tread at a time, this allows Octopus Grip to soak in and not drip. Please take care to not splash Octopus Grip onto your paintwork.
3. Allow to air dry overnight.
4. Wrap in industrial grade plastic wrap when your done. Simple!
Depending on the condition of your tyres, several coats may be required. See below for recommended applications.
Tips for Weekend Racing. If your event is for more than one day, if required you can apply Octopus Grip at the end of first days racing but DO NOT wrap tyres - this allows residue to evaporate overnight.
Older Tyres. Some older tyres may require a few treatments and usage before optimum results are gained – the hardened outer layer must be penetrated. For best results on older or harder semi slick tyres apply two coats and allow to absorb overnight, apply another two coats, wrap and your done!
Hillclimb soft slick tyres. Do not over treat, the softer the tyre was new ... the more dramatic Octopus Grip works. Usually one coat is sufficient to bring an older soft compound hillclimb slick tyre back to life.
Test if in doubt. Do not over treat your tyres, Octopus Grip works very well and brings your older tyres back into life with 1 to 4 coats, see the guide above as a starting point, experiment to see what suits your vehicle and type of racing.
